Which namespace should I upload to?by harleypig (Monk)

harleypig has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a generic wrapper for eBay webservices. Initially I was going to upload it to the CPAN under the Webservice::eBay namespace but someone doing something similar was going to go with Net::eBay because of Net::Amazon.
Both have valid points. I'm curious as to which namespace the monks would suggest and why.
Even though there are few replies and it's only been a few hours since I posted this question the replies I've gotten have bolstered my opinion that this should go under the Webservice::eBay namespace.
I did initially think of registering the eBay namespace but didn't for the very reason mentioned in one reply; namely that I don't want to appear to be an official support for eBay and all that entails.
So I'll upload a developer release to the CPAN under the Webservice::eBay namespace. Thanks for the insightful and helpful replies.
