I've got a bunch of attempts on CPAN, but the one people actually seem to
use is the small Text::Capitalize module (which does title casing).
Similarly David Muir Sharnoff has quite a bit of good work on CPAN, but he
mentioned to me his Text::Wrap seems to be one of the more widely used.
(I think there's a lesson here for potential module-authors...).

Getting something like a comprehensive list of CPAN stuff SF Perl people
have worked on would be tricky because the boundaries of the group are a
bit fuzzy.
Do you include Tatsuhiko Miyagawa?  Jeremy Zawodny?
