in thread Importing multiple %EXPORT_TAGS

I never use it. I am also in the habit of exporting nothing (, Lewbowski) and using the fully qualified package name. The only time I've see Exporter even remotely useful is a package was just a ton of constants and the combination of namespace and actual variable names was simply too much.

    Out of my 53 CPAN distributions, I've got only 3-4 that aren't OO (so no need to export anything). The rest I use @EXPORT_OK

    Are you saying that you make your users type out the fully qualified name for each function call (ie. Some::Module::Name::function())?
