At a client I've already seen two teams of programmers using
CompanyName::Utils on different projects/machines. Of course, one day
they had to be installed on the same perl installation...

I think I like it. It provides the same safety as the Java way, but
without the verbosity in the general case ("use CGI" instead of
"use org.perl.CGI").

The idea is that the first face shown to people is one they can readily
accept - a more traditional logo. The lunacy element is only revealed
subsequently, via the LunaDude. [excerpted from the Lunatech Identity Manual]
