in reply to "Vanity Tagging" on CPAN?

Nowadays, Perl monks seems the best place to get decent and quick feedback on almost anything related to Perl. However, if you want a second opinion, post your question to perl module-authors mailing list. From browsing the archives, I think the consensus on that list is that using the CPAN author id as part of a module namespace is bad form.

    How about if you've got a good idea for a module (extending something existing / improving on something or creating something totally new) that those mailing lists are first port of call to ask for suggestions?

    Something that may seem obvious and meaningful to you may be totally obscure to the rest of the community.

    update
    Okay, seems like someone thought that was a bad idea. I short explanation as to why would have been more helpful than an anonymous downvote though :) If we don't know where we're going wrong, how can we learn from our mistakes?
