( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

On the other hand, if your creative impulse can be channeled into building a module that extends Net::IRC, then your module name is easier to make up: Net::IRC::Extrafeature (whatever the primary "Extrafeature" may be). Doing it this way has some advantages for all concerned:

This would be a perfect world. The problem is that some modules need completely or mostly complete rewrites. I have a similar problem right now with Net::MSN, i've worked with a community and we have spent a lot of time rebuilding the whole interface. It works, but where do we put it? It's not a just a patch to the original Net::MSN, its a completely different module with the same goal. I doubt there is a perfect answer, but "build off the current one" often isn't an option. Any best of luck BUU and if you have stroke of genious let us know :) Ohh for the record I don't think adding your name to the module is a solution, it just confuses the name space on cpan.
