I need to write a perl module which will parse a .pgpass file into a
reasonable data-structure in memory. I may extend it later to go in the
other direction (given a populated datastructure, write a .pgpass).

The first question that came to mind is what namespace should I put
this under? Is there any precedent for perl modules intended to support
postgresql administration? If not, I suggest


PostgreSQL sounds like a logical choice. However CPAN - which has
product-specific namespaces such as DB2, MySQL, Msql and Oracle, has
"Postgres" rather than "PostgreSQL"  (though there are only two
modules in it, one of which dates from 1998,
see http://cpan.org/modules/by-module/Postgres/ ).
