Re^3: Perl allows package names consisting entirely of colonsby BrowserUk (Pope)

I don't think this would not be a significant cost. Only the package declaration would have to be checked ...
Is that true? What about?:
But also, once you start trying to validate this, what other additional rules are you going to add? Should we allow package _::_::_;?
That said, I'm fine with Perl's "if you want to do something stupid, who are we to stop you?" philosophy.
I also think that we should stick to that principle.
