in reply to lib::http - Using virtually a Perl library from the Internet with the HTTP protocol.

very nice++. but since all-lowercase module names are preserved for pragmas, i think you should think about renaming your module, eg. Lib::Http.

Update:
Oops. I assumed that pragmas are supposed to be one-worded. but rereading the perldoc i found nothing that backs that. Also there are threads::shared and warnings::register as precedents.
tx, theorbtwo, another wonderful example how dangerous assumptions are ,)

    lib::http, as described above, is a pragmata, every bit as much as the standard lib is.

    Minor nit: I'd suggest Lib::HTTP only because Http looks ridiculous, being an acronym.

    I put this name because we already have a "pragma" module called lib, and lib::http works exatcly like it, but over the internet.
