I second this advice on naming. The proposed name tells users nothing in relation to what the module does, and 'Fancy' is subjective.

    A subjective name is not necessarily a problem —XML::Simple is the most complex XML parser I know— but the descriptor shouldn't be the top level! There's already File:: which contains similar module File::Slurper. How about File::FancySlurp?
