if you mean future versions of mp1, that's a good idea.  that's probably 
reason enough to release 1.28 when we get this all sorted out.

actually, I hadn't thought about it much, so I didn't realize that we could 
keep Apache-Test as the distribution name while changing the offending file 

sticking with Apache-Test as the distribution gets my vote.  I don't think 
it's too confusing - other major distributions use packages that differ from 
the distribution name (libwww-perl, perl-ldap, Filter, etc).

now I care much less about the name of the package that actually supplies 
the base functions - Apache::Tester is fine with me. Apache::TestPlan also 
sorta makes sense, since then

use Apache::TestPlan;
use Apache::TestRequest;

mirror what's really happening - one package is required for planning (and 
other housekeeping functions) and one is required for issuing the requests.

I dunno, I'm terrible with names anyway, so I'll shut up now and just wait 
for the results :)
