Hi all!

This is my first post to this list. I'm not living in Melbourne, either, but 
rather am an Israeli. You can learn more about me on my homesite: 
http://www.shlomifish.org/ . In any case, I've been helping Simon Taylor and 
Becky Alcorn (who are living in Melbourne, IIRC) with perlmeme.org.

Now back to the issue at hand.

Regarding h2xs, one should probably prefer module-starter:


It is more modern, and also is pluginnable:


h2xs may still be useful if you'd like to generate module templates that will 
also be compatible with older versions of perl5.

Chuck Norris wrote a complete Perl 6 implementation in a day but then
destroyed all evidence with his bare hands, so no one will know his secrets.
