Sorry, your claim that CGI.pm isn't for networking is, well, silly.

As for CPANPLUS, if they want to keep "CPAN" in the name, then the primary way they are going to attach to CPAN is via a network. I don't mind in the least if they decide that this is not really the central purpose of the module and call it something having to do with "module management" or whatever.

But the point is that the only modules that don't have "::" in their names should be all-lowercase, that is, pragmas. See Filehandles vs. Packages: And the winner is... for one good reason why.

Other reasons include the "I used CGI" problem. Having a "::" in a module name can avoid a lot of confusion.

    [Lady_Aleena]: My biggest problem with hashes at the moment is one with 2,501 keys.
    [choroba]: how many event types are there?
    [Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
    [Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
    [Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
    [Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
    [robby_dobby]: Corion: I hope you know all too well that passing around "fancy" datastructures is a recipe for disaster :-)
    [robby_dobby]: As in, it's-too-fancy- that-it-will-be- messy-to-handle
    [choroba]: bit vectors as keys?
    [robby_dobby]: Hmm, I keep falling asleep at my desk, while maintaining an active appearance. Am I getting old?
