[Chicago-talk] Is it worth to be put in CPAN?

The module proposed is just for traversing across hierarchy (tree, trees) structure inspired by Dominus's HOP. The function is not specified for growing trees, trimming trees, nor burning trees. Its behavior depends on the optional callback functions passed into it. By default, it only walks through the hierarchy structure without doing anything, except using some system resources. That’s what I mean generic.

There are a few modules in the Tree:: heirarchy (Tree::Simple,
Tree::DAG_Node) that do similar things.  This doesn't mean that you
shouldn't put yours on CPAN though.  If you do, be sure to include test
scripts for your module.
