Naming issues are likely to become worse in Perl 6 when we also have modules that use Parrot. You might have three implementations of Digest::SHA, one in Perl 6, one that uses Parrot, and one that uses C. Worse, you might even find a module that depends on both Parrot *and* C.

Much much worse. There will be many implementations of Perl 6, and each will have totally different non-native interfaces.

The front-end should figure out which binary is proper for your platform. Non-binary source code can simply contain everything supported, and let the build process sort it out.
