These package names are all condemned, to be forbidden in perl 5.20 or possibly
perl 5.22.

  package ::X
  package X::
  package X::::Y

...and especially:

  package ::

Similarly any package names which use ' to similar effect.  The removal of the
package separator ' from perl is out of scope for this ticket.
