ZF-8603: Zend_Json_Server does not allow namespaces that start with numbers

I'm implemented a JSON-RPC server, but I've been snagged.

The namespace I want to use starts with a number.

This namespace does not pass the regular expressions that validate the namespaces in Zend_Json_Server_Smd_Service and Zend_Json_Server_Request, as a result the JSON-RPC server does not work.

If I remove the regular expression checks the code all works fine.

Given that namespaces starting with numbers are allowed in JSON-RPC, why are they being blocked in Zend_Json_Server?

Please don't suggest that I use a different namespace, due to forces outside of my control this would be a major headache.

Actually, there's really no reason to do so. My original thought on the matter was that it was a PHP limitation -- that we were mapping namespaces directly to PHP classes as a 1:1 mapping. However, that's not the case -- the namespace maps to a class, but they do not have to match.

Please file an issue in the tracker for this. In the meantime, simply extend Zend_Json_Server locally, and override the method that does the namespace check.
