while i totally agree with this, there are some modules with the name 
d'oh in them!

|||use| |D <https://metacpan.org/pod/D>||'oh '||i_hate_this_program';|
|||D||'oh::stderr('||/tmp/stderr'); ||# redirect all stderr to /tmp/stderr|


      D'oh::Year <https://metacpan.org/pod/D'oh::Year> - Catch stupid
