What do you think?
I think its fantastic you want to share code ie contribute something :)
Do you think you'd like to use such a Perl module?
almost exists but not exactly identical to your usage/api
So is there room for your module on CPAN? yes there is room, CPAN not afraid of crowding :)
Do you like the name 'Auto::Log'?
No, it introduces a new namespace "Auto" and auto is a meaningless filler word, like "API" .. its a stopword ... yes, CPAN is full of APIs that do stuff automatically ... even log stuff "automatically" ... auto is one of http://pause.perl.org/pause/query?ACTION=pause_namingmodules#NAMES_TO_AVOID
Also, your module is not really a "Logging" module, all it does is redirect STDOUT/STDERR while most "logging" module provide granularity/filtering/timestamps...
You can learn lots about naming APIs by reading these nodes
