Re: Module Naming & Relevancy
Message ID:
I think if PACER is unambiguous (there's no other Web service named PACER)
then further qualification shouldn't be needed.

If PACER is a single standard that could be used for multiple services
other than the US courts (other countries were to implement the same
service with the same api) then qualification would be at the other end...
WebService::PACER::USCourt (for example).

But PACER could be a term that is eventually overloaded when someone else
names their own unrelated Web service PACER. While only a slim possibility
I don't think forwardly ensuring unambiguous module naming wouldn't be a
bad idea.

Just my 2c worth. :)
