in reply to Regrettable module names

This one's not my own, but (sorry Schwern):

Ima::DBI
It's a subclass of DBI that gives it a few extra methods, and it's widely deployed now thanks to the popularity of Class::DBI.

Hello, I'm a DBI.

    Totally agree. Should have been I'm::a::DBI :)

      Quite right, since "Ima" means "Mother" in Hebrew (well, okay, Aramaic, but let's not get carried away), and I don't think it's supposed to be the mother of all DBI modules...

      That'll work great until you use some syntax-highlighting editor that mistakes it for a quoted string :)

      You++ anyway, for finding an almost-good use of the single-quote package seperator.

        Don't forget about another great use of the apostrophe namespace separator.
        ------------ :Wq Not an editor command: Wq
        This already happens whenever I use `, #, ", and ' in regexps. What editor are you using that it correctly parses perl? Both the cperl-perl and perl-perl major modes of emacs get this sort of stuff wrong all the time.
