When using generic names for modules, I like to prefix the name with
another namespace. If your module is for personal use, then you might
use CK::Link. That keeps your module clear of interference from anyone
else who might like the desirable name of 'Link'. (Think: HTML::Parser,
XML::Parser, YAML::Parser, Perl6::Parser, CMEYER::SuperBogus::Parser).
