  • While there's some bits of what you want to do that would certainly be useful (like some sort of unified lib detection) I'm generally negative on the idea of standardising Alien, or at least, about any version of the idea that involves the CPAN installer compiling C libs.

    I still much prefer the concept of having the CPAN installer "co-ordinate" with other platform-specific binary package installers.

    Of course, that's an entire other problem.

    Some parts of this though, like cross-language dependency specific, do need to be solved in any case though.
