I think a QD:: domain is a bad idea. When I know that the interface
may undergo severe changes, I append a 0 to the name, for instance
the QD version of Dog::Walk might be called Dog::Walk0 to indicate
QD nature more strongly than a version number with a lot of leading
zeros would. When the interface settles down, release Dog::Walk,
then do bug fixes, performance enhancements, and add new features
in a backwards-compatible way.
