In Perl you spell this "package NAME;". All "dynamic" bindings from then
until the next package statement (or end of enclosing block, etc -- it's
Perl <wink>) then end up in the NAME namespace. This is also how you
declare a class in Perl. This is what it leads to <wink>:
If you have a package called m, s, or y, then you can't use the
qualified form of an identifier because it would be instead
interpreted as a pattern match, a substitution, or a transliteration.
