in reply to Changing a module's namespace on CPAN

Release a new module. If it contains substanitially more functionality, keep the backward compatible API distinct.

Old::Module becomes New::Module New::Module::OldModCompat

Then update the old module, addind text referring to the new module, and saying that the old will receive no further maintenance work. Don't remove it.

And think very carefully about the new modules name!
