in reply to *::Tiny modules namespace origins

Please don't use ::Tiny unless it meets the ::Tiny criteria, thanks!

Here are the rules Adam Kennedy originally defined for what ::Tiny means:

  1. The module should be implemented in "as little code as possible"
  2. The module should implement a useful subset of functionality
  3. The module should use at least 1/10th the amount of memory overhead, ideally less than 100k
  4. The module MUST have no non-core dependencies
  5. The module MUST be only one single .pm file
  6. The module should be back-compatible to at least 5.004
  7. The module should omit functionality rather than implement it incorrectly.
  8. If applicable, the module should be compatible with the larger module.
