  • Was this, perchance, prompted by my recently pointing out that if I were to use $module to fix something then I would have to use Module::Install?

    In that case, I don't have a problem (my code works fine, it breaks a buggy POD parser which will have no effect on real users), so that other module and Module::Install are inconvenient changes, not a handy solution. I'd rather spend my time reading, watching rugby, drinking beer, and writing new code than spend it fiddling with old code that works.

    I also have other valid reasons for not using Module::Install (and Module::Build). The most important ones are that adding *yet another* module buildy thing (M::I) is pointless and just complicates matters for everyone, and that M::B doesn't work very well, although the reason for it existing is a good one and I wish it did work better cos then I'd use it for new modules.
