=head1 NAME

strict::ModuleName -- verify that current package name matches filename


    # In a file (some @INC dir)/
    package Shazbot;
    use strict::ModuleName;
     # does nothing, because matches package name "Shazbot"

That does nothing, because the package name "Shazbot" is exactly
what you'd expect from "" in an @INC directory.

But any of these will throw a fatal error:

    # In a file (some @INC dir)/
    package ShazBot;
    use strict::ModuleName;
     # that's a fatal error, because Shazbot isn't ShazBot
    # In a file (some @INC dir)/
    package Shaz::Bot;
    use strict::ModuleName;
     # that's a fatal error, because Shazbot isn't Shaz::Bot
    # In a file (not any @INC dir)/
    package Shazbot;
    use strict::ModuleName;
     # That's a fatal error, because ShazBot wasn't findable
     #  via any @INC dir.


This module stops you from having your module's filename and package
name disagree, such as might happen as you're changing the name as
you're developing the module; or such as might happen if you are using a
case insensitive filesystem, and get the case wrong in the filename.

A line saying C<use strict::ModuleName;> in a module is basically an
compile-time assertion that the current package name is compatible with
the filename which the current source is being read from.

=head1 NOTES

Maybe this module should just warn() more instead of die()ing?
