Are you suggesting to populate everything in  
«$CVSROOT/perl/modules/W3C/MVS/», e.g 
«$CVSROOT/perl/modules/W3C/MVS/HTTP/Charset», 
«$CVSROOT/perl/modules/W3C/MVS/IP::ACL» etc?

Or «$CVSROOT/perl/modules/IP/ACL», 
«$CVSROOT/perl/modules/W3C/Markup/Validator» etc

The latter fits the use of «$CVSROOT/perl/modules/W3C/MVS/» closer, as 
we tend to match CVS path and perl module namespace. Obvious drawback 
is the lack of one cvs module to 'cvs get'.

On a side note, I think I prefer W3C::MarkupValidator to 
W3C::Markup::Validator. Any W3C::Markup::* we could think of, that 
would make the namespace necessary?

The result of the hacking is not saved yet, is it? I could not find it 
in either SF's CVS or CPAN.

SF's admittedly lower entry barrier for developers did not bring in a 
lot of developers for SPO so migrating to dev at some point could make 
sense? qa-dev is not an issue, we can test there regardless of where 
the code is distributed/hosted.
