Hi,

I've noticed that both WWW::Gmail and WWW::GMail exist.  They're different modules by different people.  While Perl allows case sensitive namespaces, they are not a good idea.  If both are installed they will overwrite each other on a case insensitive filesystem such as OS X.  Many CPAN tools, such as rt.cpan.org, don't treat case consistently.

Hopefully you'll work it out between yourselves.
