  • I have to say I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, I see projects like Apache, and for that matter Perl, which have catchy names that don't aim to be descriptive and it's worked well for them. On the other hand if someone was looking for say an OO to RDBMS mapping framework they'd be far more likely to stumble across Class::DBI than Alzabo. I'm not suggesting the CPAN namespace hierarchy is as good as we can get, but there's certainly plenty of value in it.

    • Have you ever tried finding a Ruby library to do X? This convention of cute and clever (rather than obvious) names seems much more common on the RAA, and it causes nothing but pain.
