Attached to: Do you order your sub definitions?

But as time goes by I get less inclined to. POD gets written down after the __END__ and the module gets written up in learning order, but in the body of the code, stuff falls where it will (usually near to where it got extracted from) and etags claims its own.

If I'm coding in Ruby, it goes 'public, protected, private' (and when I do sort perl methods, that's the kind of gradient I go with as well, even though perl doesn't make those distinctions.)

Nested TAP would be good, I think. I'm planning on getting Test::Class::Sugar to a releaseable point over the weekend, and hopefully making a good start on something like cucumber http://cukes.info/ with Devel::Declare driven syntax, though I might get sidetracked into trying to write a perlish autotest if such a thing doesn't already exist.

Both those (and definitely the cucumber port) would benefit from nestability.

I'm not sure when I'm going to get there - won't be there 'til Saturday morning.
