I have to say I am surprised this one made it into the top level namespace.

Then you misunderstand how CPAN works. Once an author has a PAUSE id, she can upload whatever modules she wants. It's only entry into the module list that you need approval for - and I'm guessing that Slurp hasn't yet made it into there.

    As it is, I have not as yet applied for entry into the module list for some of the very issues raised in this review - Indeed, I will probably wait until I have had further feedback on the merit of this module before I am so audacious :-)


    perl -le 'print+unpack("N",pack("B32","00000000000000000000001000001011"))'

    No misunderstanding. I know there's nothing technically preventing someone from claiming a top-level namespace -- I was just surprised that it didn't cause a furor on the modules mailing alias, followed by subsequent requests to the author to consider renaming.

    Having said that, I must admit I have not been tracking the modules discussion content lately. Perhaps I'm not the only one.

    (on further reflection, perhaps my misunderstanding, if any, pertains to the level of attention paid to unregistered name spaces by the maintainers)
