Hello.

I realize that this is a bit awkward but here is my situation.

I wanted to code a pastebin mover to one could retrieve pasted content
from one relatively "any" pastebin and paste it into another (if one
wonders why, it's for a POE::Component::IRC::Plugin because many people
don't use proper pastebins when asking questions, etc...)

So I started to code ::Retrieve/::Create modules for different pastebins
and naming them as:

WWW::PastebinCa::Retrieve
WWW::PastebinCom::Create
WWW::PastebinCom::Retrieve
WWW::PhpfiCom::Retrieve
WWW::Rafb::Create
WWW::Rafb::Retrieve

The WWW::PastebinCa::Create one is not registered yet..

But now I realize that people tend to paste into much more different
pastebins than I thought of and to make my "mover" successful I need to
code a bunch more modules for a ton + 1 different pastebins.
I was thinking that it would be much better to put them all into
WWW::Pastebin::* namespace. So I was wondering if it's easy enough to
"re-register" the modules listed above under WWW::Pastebin::* namespace
(i.e. s/(?<=WWW::)/Pastebin::/)? Or should I just make the new ones
under WWW::Pastebin::* namespace?

Thanks.

    My advice is to worry about the registrations later, once everything
    has settled. That way you save yourself the hassle of registering every
    idea you have, and you create less work for us. Names are very
    important, so don't rush to register them. This isn't the domain name
    market with all sorts of squatters. :)

    Realize that you don't have to register every namespace you use.
    Register the main namespace in a distribution and don't worry about the
    rest of the ones in there.

    As far as re-registering, just submit a new registration, and go to the
    old modules in PAUSE and set their lifecycle to "Can be deleted". :)
