I'll be brief, as it's probably a good time for reflection,
but the fact that mod_perl is complex is perhaps a good
reason for us to consider the wider implications, to some
degree. Although it's well written, has great user support,
and there's a growing document set (all for which Stas
deserves much of the credit), one of the appeals of mod_perl
is the numerous other Perl resources and support available
(CPAN, * sites, etc., including probably a number
of private, in-house tools). The possible effect of making
these more difficult and/or confusing to an average user is
something, I think, we should consider in deciding on the
namespace problem.
