in reply to "Vanity Tagging" on CPAN?

I wouldn't use your name. I agree with boris. You should not use your name as a root name.

I wonder if other languages (cp. Java & PHP) have the same issues? Perhaps your question points to a broader concern of the structure of CPAN. IMO it is too loose and allows too much autonomy by the authors. And I do not see this as a strength.

    In Java you use your domain name, in reverse order. IE
    package org.perlmonks.why.do.we.have.a.java.class;
    PHP doesn't really have any good namespace system. You can define classes, but that's only one level of namespaceing. You have to resort to the old C style smMdlAbbr_* before your variables and functions.
