I'm afraid I find module errors well over my head and don't think your average Perl developer should have to understand such internals.
Am I the only one that finds this snippet disturbing? Shouldn't an "average <language> developer" understand the environment he/she is working in?
IMNSHO, one of the richest tools at the disposal of the Perl community is, precisely, CPAN. I think an APD should understand how this works and how to use this tool.
Really, I don't mean this to be a rant. I'm just curious about what the rest thinks.
-lem, but some call me fokat
