in thread The quantity vs. quality lesson
Why are you telling us? Have you told the author(s)? Have you submitted a bug report with accompanying test case(s)? Have you submitted a documentation patch?
I am not sure, wether I did the right thing here. The moment I wrote this, I thought it is fine to shoot a little back to a perlmonk who critizies other module authors so hard, but does not live in the cleanest house, too. Anyway, I hope that will not end in a flamewar or something like that. I am willing to participate in efforts to make the linguistic cpan a better place if someone wants to organize such an effort.
... Okay, probably I played the teacher Mr. Asshole here. Sorry for that.

The strategy "to shoot back" is perfectly ok for me, I often deploy it myself.
Unfortunatedly I cannot see the relevance of your feedback.
Documentation states clearly which method to use, and the output is not "not exactly wrong" but the best you can do
(if you have some linguistic education and know that you
will need a morphological component anyway).
Moreover - and this is not an excuse - it is 2 years old
and served - as all of our modules that are on CPAN - as tutorial for starting developers @ PetaMem.
Probably you would like to look after Lingua::SV::Num2Word?
And yes, there will be updates to this whole Lingua:: bunch
RSN, as I can see in our project schedule.
