I think you are confusing the C namespaces (struct names are in a different
namespace than function names) and C++ ones. Markus was talking of the former.

By the way, C++ ones have nothing to do with OOP, its just a way of solving
name clashes, it provides language support for an already existing practice
in C, where almost every reasonable library will prefix all its external
symbol with some 'lib_' prefix.
