Even with all issues considered and consensus reached, though, I would advise that you consider this change tentative until it has had a CPAN smoke run or two to assess its breakage potential. If those smokes show carnage, the design would have to stay as is, unfortunate as it may be; if not, but there is still more than near-zero breakage, then some kind of transition phase would be necessary.
