Changing @namespace from http to https installs a duplicate version.

This is a major problem and breaks the Wikipedia editor script wikEd because updates will not actually update the active version and users are constantly getting update notices.

Namespace detection should be protocol-independent, especially now that many websites switch over to https. Also, the fix should disable the older version of the duplicates so that users are not left with two versions running in parallel (for wikEd, the older version does not have a @Version info).

This is working as designed. There is no semantic meaning to the value in the @namespace setting. There is no reason to put a URL there at all. I do not plan to add semantic meaning to this field, and especially not to make it parse or specially handle URLs.
