As part of my project to include sub signatures into the perl core, the natural namespace to use - signatures - is already used. The defaults provided by signatures.pm are the same as what I've been working to include in core, but the extension mechanism (in my opinion) wouldn't be appropriate for core, and the guts would need to be re-implemented for better integration and to get rid of any other CPAN dependencies. I propose moving the extension API of signatures to Signatures, and trimming down signatures to a shape suitable for core distribution, with a soft dependency on Signatures if those (CPAN only) features are desired. Thoughts?
