Small nitpick about option names (was: RFC Debian package upgrade with Config::Model)


Sorry for the long delay. I had to put this discussion aside due to
paid workload and preparation of the French Perl Workshop (where I
presented Config::Model [1] )

Before plunging back in the package upgrade subject, I'd like to tackle
the smaller issue of option renaming that you suggested.

I'm may be nitpicking, but what do you think of 'config_default' instead
of 'configfile_default'? So we'd have 'config_default' vs

After all, Config::Model could be used to configure directly an
application instead of using a configuration file. That's just a matter
of setting up a backend with IPC.

BTW, Checklist has similar default options that would become
'config_default_list' and 'builtin_default_list'.

Once this option name modification  is done, I'll resume working on
package upgrade with Config::Model.

All the best
