The only hits for `autark' in Google are in this code, so normally I'd
suspect that a search-and-replace run has transformed something else
into autarky: but in this case it was added at the same time as the
function, in r3123 by Kasimier Buchcik.

Does anyone have a clue what `autark' actually means? (In context, I'd
expect `up to date' or `not obsolete' or perhaps `consistent'?)

See - in this context, he
basically means "self-sufficient", i.e. namespaces are included on the
node itself.

  Heh, Kasimier wins the prize for the most cryptic while correct comment.
I guess it's worth a (virtual) beer,
