  • is that it doesn't really matter what you think. A considerable portion of the rest of the world will end up using Moose irrespective of your opinion of it. Will you accept it in your dependencies and spend your time working on something useful, or you dedicate the remainder of your life to shaving Yak::Tiny?
    • A considerable portion? Really? Most people I run into using Perl don't even know there's a CPAN.

      And, isn't this the same tired argument about why we should be using whatever the hot new technolgy is? I've lost count how many times I've been told this about some Perl module or framework. Indeed, if that's really what you believe, why do you even use Perl? You should be using Java, since even more of the world uses that. And Windows too. And ..., and ..., and ...

Yes - CPAN contributors should be free to choose any way they want to code their own modules - but on the other hand those that add these modules as dependencies to their code should be secure that a new version of these dependencies will not render their code unusable. This situation is pretty much the same as with API deprecations and calls for a similar measure - explicite declarations from the module authors.
