In reference to "Users" vs "User", "TIckets" vs "Ticket" .pm modules, Tina asks:
> But why do you seperate between singular and plural?
Took me a while to get this but here's my take:
The singulars are direct maps to the Database tables and are primarily used to interface to DBIx::SearchBuilder; they correspond to record definitions. The plurally named modules deal with collections and groups of records
I suppose that a table is a collection of records, therefore the plurality.
Between that and the capitalization means I never can correctly type the table name the first time.
