Well, I'm gaining the distinct impression that acme was (and remains) a formidable player "behind the scenes" -- I suspect he was egging on DrHyde behind the scenes to upload Acme::Pony, for instance. So perhaps he was similarly urging Damian to please, please choose Acme as the new joke module namespace. :)

However, I believe that Acme::Bleach was the first uploaded Acme module, at least that's what I see:

  • Backpan DCONWAY shows Bleach released on 21 Feb 2001 and Acme::Bleach on 21 May 2001
  • Backpan LBROCARD shows Buffy released on 1 Apr 2001 and Acme::Buffy on 23 May 2001
  • Backpan DCANTRELL shows Pony released on 3 Apr 2001 and Acme::Pony on 20 June 2001
