Re: Pre-RFC: a `module` keyword
Message ID:
I like the idea of syntactic support for function libraries, but I don’t like the proposed use of the word "module".

We have existing, well-established, terminology where a module is a package in a .pm file of the corresponding name, and a module can either be a class or a function library (or the love child of both).

I don’t have a great alternative to suggest ("sublibrary", "exporter", "library", … ?)
