Most style guides I work under ask for the full package name of external functions
What an awful idea. Just being explicit about what you import from any module you use is a much better idea. @EXPORT is evil but @EXPORT_OK makes for easier-to-read/-write code and provides reasonable interface verification (at compile time, no less). demerphq already said all of this, but I just boggle at the sentence I quoted so I had to chime in against such insanity.
