I for one would like that.  I know what POD *is*, have even used it on
occasion, but it would sure do me good to see some other's "favorite
ways".  Just like this current discussion is airing folks' accumulated
*practical* knowledge of _Perl_ style, you could focus us on the
*practical* knowledge of _POD_ style.  Like Perl, the POD syntax is
pretty easy to look up in a reference book.  But like any language,
it's the idioms and familiar usages that become interesting and
powerful communication tools.

I think a lightning talk on "my favorite ways to use POD" would be
very helpful to me, and the group.
