    Considering that one has to write documentation *first* in order to use POD. Too much complexity in what should be simple isn't really addressing the problem of not enough people document their modules. It's like people bitching about yet they are usually the ones who either don't have a version or never bothered to read the documentation on what the appropriate version string is supposed to be. Close to 40% of the modules on CPAN either lack a version or POD or both. This isn't something XML is really going to fix.

    Adding complexity never solves a problem, it just adds more complexity.
