in reply to How do you pronounce "::"?

As anonymous said, normally, I treat the :: as a silent word-break.

The exception might sometimes be if I'm speaking of a line of code verbatim, e.g., "you're missing a semicolon on the line 'use Foo colon-colon BarBaz'". But even then, only if I think it might not be clear from context.

    Ditto. The naming conventions of most modules make this pretty easy and unambiguous. "CGI Application" and "Digest MD5" and such are easily understood verbally.
