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
    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.
