Maybe it's just me, but I often thought that creating package names
from reversed domain names was a big bucket of stupid.  When people
from four companies release conceptually similar modules, perhaps even
inheriting from/delegating to one another, the names make life much
more confusing.

Hmm ... I kinda like Getopt::Postmodern.  Whatever happened to the
humor of popular modules like Carp?
