Interesting.  Simon (hi Simon!) is probably right that "Definitive
[library module] names discourage wheel reinvention."  The problem,
though, is that such an approach means that whoever writes the *first*
module called "XML::Parser" or "Text::Soundex" (or whatever) ends up
having written the definitive one, whether it's any good or not.

(I guess one could then write and contribute "XML::Parser::Good", but
somehow that doesn't entirely address the difficulty :-)
