Shouldn't writing modules, at least for CPAN, be a _little_ hard, or
more precisely, a little involved? How much of the stuff that comes
out of h2xs or module-starter is fluff? Finding stuff on CPAN is
already pretty annoying, because there are so many half-assed modules
with inadequate documentation, tests, commenting, etc.
I _like_ the idea that module writers who fail to alter the stub
documentation open themselves to ridicule.
In fact, I'd like to see Pod::Coverage, and maybe Test::Coverage
results integrated into the search interface. Filter my results to
eliminate garbage like this, please:
As someone who takes documentation and QC seriously, I appreciate
having a template prepared for me that errs on the side of excess.
