Multiple people tried to discourage you from using Dzil in your previous thread. Here's my anti-answer...

You decided to start using learning how to swim in North Atlantic instead of the shallow end of a swimming pool. You've mastered the doggie paddle but you're far from shore in cold, rough water, the wind is starting to pick up and... Wait, was that a shark that just swam past? You feel like you just might drown or get eaten at any point.

Take a deep breath, open your eyes and stand up. Fortunately you are in the shallow end of the swimming pool because you can switch to a simpler tool at any point (with some work) if you choose to do so.

    I am just seeing the other replies now. Haven't been able to get to them yet. I don't ignore any response on here, except for Anonymous Monks'.

    As noted, I am interested in Dist::Zilla because 1) that is what is being used by Dancer2 and 2) I was looking for ways to automate things and it does this nicely.

    Regarding deep/shallow end, yeah, you are right. But it is definitely nice to be able instantly trigger a bunch of automation with a few keystrokes. Sure, it offers much more power than what I need at this point writing my hokey little module. However, getting familiar with it has unlocked a lot of the mystery of the process for me and has gotten me a bit fascinated by it. It's approach with the .ini files set up like they are as a kind of mini programming language was something I've never seen before and I thought that was interesting.
