+1 from me; this isn't just perl either; I think the only language I've ever
used that doesn't have namespace nesting is C, and that doesn't have
namespaces at all.  How do you write a huge program with a flat namespace?
 Do you start prefixing your module names with their scope, like
mycomponent_mysubpart:myfn, write really huge files, or what?
