I've seen a convention of advertising '~/foo' as a topic name for gazebo publishers. How does that resolve?

I dug into the source and found the resolution is here: https://bitbucket.org/osrf/gazebo/src...

It resolves to "/gazebo/" + this->topicNamespace where this->topicNamespace is what is passed to the Transport.Init method for the transport upon which is being advertised.
