Rename backend library namespaces to be of the form ‘FolksSomething’
Submitted by Philip Withnall

Currently, the backend library namespaces are ‘tpf’, ‘swf’, etc. These are unhelpful, and don’t expose the fact that they’re folks libraries. Furthermore, they require weird hacks (*-namespace.vala) to fix the namespaces for GIR files, and these hacks break when subclassing within the library. I just fixed an issue like that for the dummy backend.
I suggest that when we next break API, we: • Rename all the backend library namespaces to be of the form ‘FolksSomething’ (e.g. ‘FolksTelepathy’ or ‘FolksEds’). • Add the ability to separately version each backend library so their sonames can be controlled separately.
