Naming XS modules (was: Re^7: a *working* JSON module (Perl's Debugger), related issues)

in thread Can someone please write a *working* JSON module

One of my distributions, Bit::Manip is an XS based module, but I also have a pure perl version (Bit::Manip::PP)

I'm intrigued why you called one Bit::Manip::PP but didn't name the other Bit::Manip::XS. Intrigued because naming of modules seems a bit of a dark art to me despite all the advice on the matter.

    Because I had written the entirety of Bit::Manip in C and XS, then front-ended it in Perl and released it. It was only after a while later I decided to do a rewrite in pure Perl and release that separately. No reason other than it had already been released as Bit::Manip.
