Greetings, fellow monks.
I come to you seeking advice to help choose a module starter system, specifically for production quality / CPAN-destined code. I'm especially interested in good or bad experiences, comparisons and reasons that one is good or bad. I'm just hoping to get a general sense of what the perlmonks crowd thinks, whether there is disagreement or consensus.
I'm aware of the following choices:

Snippets of code should be wrapped in
<code> tags not
<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
