in thread use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;

Your approach isn't transparent: references will be blessed into the shortname package.
shell> perl -le '*a::=*b::; print bless [], "a"' b=ARRAY(0x8107f70)
Or not. As we can see, a is really just like any other glob alias and so is completely transparent.

[choroba]: Low-end is defined as the Perl that generates millions of income
[choroba]: sorry, that's high-end, of coursse
[choroba]: low end, in my talk, will be code that "we don't touch because it works" and noone knows why
[choroba]: I want to present the most bizzare bugs and misfeatures I met when working for a large financial institution
[choroba]: I already gave a similar talk to my friends in a pub and at an internal conference at work and people liked it, so maybe...
[choroba]: LanX: That's the heritage, I can't do anything else
[RonW]: Sounds like some system my employer has "It does exactly what we need it to do and can't afford to risk anything we can't prove is 100% compatible"
[marto]: choroba sounds interesting
[RonW]: james28909 Why not write a Perl program to do the task?
[choroba]: RonW Yes, but then, one day, they needed to switch from FTP to SFTP, and... but I can't give the whole talk away here :)
