in reply to RFC: On renaming Tracing and Assertions

I'd recommend against Devel::Trace, as Devel:: is mostly concerned with hacking the low-level innards of perl, where your module is more of a "userspace" application. Similarly, Debug::Trace implies some close association with the perl debugger, which is not the case here.

If I were releasing this module, I would probably check with the author of Log::TraceMessages first to see if the two modules could be merged or melded into a common namespace: e.g., Log::Trace and Log::Trace::Messages. If there isn't any common ground, perhaps Log::Trace is the best option so far.

For your second module, I reiterate Debug:: and Devel:; as being inappropriate top-level domains Since the module is most closely associated with Test::Harness, perhaps Test::Assertions would be best.

One other place to check naming issues before you upload may be See section 2.5 of The Perl5 Registered Module List for details.

    Kinda :) from perlrun
         runs the program under the control of a debugging, profiling, or
         tracing module installed as Devel::foo. E.g., -d:DProf executes the
         program using the Devel::DProf profiler. As with the -M flag,
         options may be passed to the Devel::foo package where they will be
         received and interpreted by the Devel::foo::import routine. The
         comma-separated list of options must follow a "=" character. See
