[Pdx-pm] Testing demo ideas

I'm trying to get some ideas for the module to build for the testing demo at the next Perl Mongers
meeting. Here are some ground rules:
1. The module should be generally understandable. Many would not appreciate or understand a
2. The module(s) should avoid requirements outside of the Perl core. I'll have Template,
DBD::SQLite, Class::DBI and other tools I enjoy installed, but I can't guarantee that your
particular favorite will be there.
3. Too much setup work will bog down the demo. Thus, the aforementioned non-core modules might
not be suitable for use.
4. "Fun" modules will obviously have more appeal than typical "Currency conversion" type
modules, but I realize that the latter might be more practical.
5. Anything with weird edge cases would be great.
Also, I prefer working with object oriented code, but I also realize that some of you may have no
experience there and throwing too many things at you at once may confuse things (which is one of
the reasons I won't be using Class::MethodMaker.) OO Perl is ridiculously simple, but that could
just be my perspective. Does anyone have strong feelings on this matter?
