Top Level Name for Perl Module

I have a perl module that facilitates file downloads. Researchers often
need to download some files off the web on daily bases. These files
could be anything such as text documents, power point slides, word
docs, or excel sheets. The program reads an XML input file, where
certain rules specify which files to download. It creates a user
specified directory structure, creates daily directories, and downloads
the files and stores them.

The name of the module is Cioffero. I would like to know, given the
description above, what should be the top name for this type of module.
 I was thinking along the lines of ExtUtils. Any suggestions?
