Are there any feelings about using Unicode::CLDR as the namespace for
some modules to deal with CLDR data since perl5 doesn't seem to have
an unified way of dealing with this and it's a fairly large gap
compared to some other languages?
I have written a complete implementation of Section 3 of
Unicode Technical Standard #35 (http://unicode.org/reports/tr35 /)
which I'd like to upload as Unicode::CLDR::ID
It is the only full implementation that I know of for locale ID
parsing, validation and canonicalisation according to the CLDR
specifications and it's intended as something further CLDR modules can
use. It seems that there have been a few abortive attempts over the
last few years to get a complete CLDR implementation for perl5 which
is sorely needed.

Re: Unicode::CLDR namespace
IMHO it's a good name.
I have here on my harddisk a yet not finished (needs more functionality
and tests) implementation of an interface to ICU
Unicode::ICU::Number - format and parse numbers for locales/rules
All of them are related to CLDR. If I adapt the naming to your idea the
names should maybe adapted to e.g. Unicode::CLDR::ICU::Transliterate - or?
Pure Perl? If yes, then the name is ok.
Nice. This means I need not develop it myself. Please send me direct
mail after upload.
