Not required, but recommended.

    Yeah, I got the idea of why it's there (and it looks useful), but the example in the Synopsis of the module itself, when run, doesn't quite give much feedback that anything happens at all.

    Is it simple a line that can *manually* be changed by someone who wants to peep into the Makefil.pl file and go, "oh hey, this is recommended, I'll just change this, 'recommend' bit to, 'required' and see what happens..."

    If so, that's fair enough and mad scientistic enough, but the docs don't gleam much on that.

        Right. Wonderful examples (and interesting use of the, "feature" thingy that I'll have to look at more closely. Just lookin' for docs on the, "recommends", feature. Am I supposed to get a,

        Hey - this module: XYZ::ABC is recommended, install? [y]

        Or something?
