in thread namespace clash : how do I rename my module safely

The complete list ( of files and locations in each file ) could be prohibitively long.

I have had to change module names a couple of times and I generally create a new module with the correct name and paste in the functions from my old module.

If not the list of things to change will include the POD, README, first line of "Changes" ...

Even after this you will have to edit all your tests and make sure examples in your POD reflect the change!
