Re: More 6PAN musings: local namespaces
Message ID:
Larry has previously mentioned the prospect of Perl 6 module names being extended to include version number and author.

If this were to be done, would seem reasonable for the "author" component to simply be the author's CPAN username. These are guaranteed unique, are frequently mnemonic, are necessary prerequisites for putting a module on the CPAN in any case, and also map straight onto email addresses through which authors can be contacted.
