Portability. You know, like I18N and L10N.
Oh... that's interesting. Totally OT here, but I had an interesting debate with the pumpkins of CPAN when I released RPG::Dice without realizing there was a Games::Dice module. My module does things slightly different than the other so I kept mine. Considering the rest of the family of modules that are undergoing much rewrite and debugging I did not want to have to refactor them as well to use the other module.
So I guess we all have different views on name space.
