in thread what would you like to see in perl5.12?

The change I propose would have require search for Foo/Bar.pm and Foo/Bar.pmc when supplied "Foo::Bar" for argument, just like when it's supplied Foo::Bar for argument.

The only thing it would break is the ability to require modules with :: in the file name. That's extremely unlikely since it would break on Windows and old Macs.

[1nickt]: But the new $job is on an older Perl and therefore using M::S, the syntax of which looks clunky to me, so far.
