Damn.  Technically there are means to unambiguously refer to a function
with the same name as a keyword, but they're cumbersome.  And we wouldn't
be bothered about a clash with a random CPAN module, but these MOP things
are sufficiently widely used that it's worth avoiding the clash.

Other prepositions that might serve: "about", "apropos", "per", "via".
The geographical connotation of "about" might go well with "where".
