Now that my long-running apps are returning "excessive token request" errors, I returned here to discover that API 2.0 is out and evidently the limits for 1.0 requests were tightened. I see that registering an app is encouraged... considerably.
My question: Should I register the CPAN Perl module I wrote (once I upgrade it to API 2.0), or is each application using that module (I myself have about half a dozen performing different small tasks) belonging to each user supposed to be registered independently?
A library should not register their own AppID. You should abstract this out so that each developer using your library can register their own AppID. Otherwise, someone who writes an inefficient app will eat up everyone else's quota for that same AppID.
