Top-level namespace pollution is evil

[ #40323 ]

Why's it evil? Because not everyone hunts for modules by using a search engine. Because you're less likely to see that you're needlessly reinventing the wheel. et cetera et cetera

People need to read perlmodstyle and think before they upload. Indeed, PAUSE should exact a pound of flesh or some other substitute before accepting top-level modules.

While we're at it, maybe we can thunk people with a clue-by-four who don't include a module description, etc.
