Well, at least that's the theory.

The writer believes it but do the readers?

If this were anything to go by, there would be a plethora of CGI::Applications sprouting forth from the CPAN.

But there aren't.


This is at least an opportunity to buck the trend by writing one of my own.

It is also an opportunity not to be missed where 'holes' in the 'functional space' of CPAN are few and far between. There is seemingly nothing new under the sun and CPAN embodies this principle. Every module you can think of is already done.

Finding a unique application space not yet well trod by many a happy hacker is getting like looking for a new house in Greater London for less than the price of a royal yacht.
