All of which makes me wonder if Leon had more to do with the invention of the Acme namespace than Damian says above.
Not as far as I know (though, of course, he may well have been mind-controlling me without my knowledge). I actually wrote to Leon to apologize for having chosen "Acme" and to ensure he was okay with that. He was, as always, extremely gracious and bestowed his most aranciate blessing on the choice.

    I'd forgotten about Leon's worship of the colour orange. Thanks for reminding me. I remember now that when davorg visited Sydney.pm some years ago, he told us that Leon had decreed that he undertake a spiritual journey to the New South Wales city of Orange and granted davorg permission to bestow his most aranciate blessing on it and to further take photographs of this sacred rural town through a specially provided naranja filter.

    That sounds likely to me. It's always seemed suspicious that Acme and Uri were the only Perl programmers with their own CPAN namespaces :-)
