       Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitPerl4PackageNames - Use double colon (::) to
       separate package name components instead of single quotes (').

       This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.

       Perl 5 kept single quotes ("'") as package component separators in order to remain
       backward compatible with prior "perl"s, but advocated using double colon ("::") instead.
       In the more than a decade since Perl 5, double colons have been overwhelmingly adopted and
       most people are not even aware that the single quote can be used in this manner.  So,
       unless you're trying to obfuscate your code, don't use them.

	   package Foo::Bar::Baz;    #ok
	   package Foo'Bar'Baz;      #not ok

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
