[Chicago-talk] HTML::Tree dependencies

Sounds like a good idea. I'm pretty sure that Sean would be open to us
working on HTML::Tagset. HTML::Parser is an entirely different issue.

We should be able to talk to the author (Gisle Aas) pretty easily,
since Sean said he was going to talk to him about

However, HTML::Parser contains C code and has 42 test files as it is.
That said, it adds up to 85% coverage as of 3.36, so that's not too
bad. (though it did through some warnings on malformed unicode
character on my powerbook just now). The other modules actually seem
like adding tests wouldn't be an absurdly hard task.

HTML::Entities and HTML::PullParser are the least tested modules in
the distribution and a few simple (looking) sub could be covered
easily I think.

Of, and the piranha idea is great, but getting a picture would be
hard. This isn't Perl Mongers and Graphic Designers. At least, I don't
think so.
