I agree with these sentiments and voiced a similar concern previously. Names 
should be descriptive and "boring", not artsy. Someone on Freenode's #perl 
once said that he likes the fact that in Perl's CPAN, most packages are given 
boring names such as XML-Parser, CGI, XML-LibXML, Text-Table, Config-IniFiles, 
etc. whereas in Ruby-land they have artsy names that do not describe their use 
such as Nokogiri, jesus, god (%-)) , etc.

So I suggest giving it a more boring and descriptive name before inclusion.
