in reply to Perl 5 -> 6 do's and don'ts?

I was going back and reading the Apocalypses and found another thing not to do in preparation for Perl 6.

Larry wants to take the X:: at the top level for Exceptions. From Apocalypse 4:

But in any event, I can't imagine getting people to prefix every exception with "Exception::". That's just gonna discourage people from using exceptions. I'm quite willing to at least reserve the X top-level class for exceptions. I think X:: is quite sufficiently distinctive.

    If it weren't invalid/so hairy to parse I'd propose ! as the exception namespace ;-)

    I'm not belgian but I play one on TV.
