Happy Holiday, davido!

Of course. Not a great big deal, or anything. But at the time, I thought it might interesting to know if anyone had some insight. That might provide for a time length, or why it was unavailable.

Once again, have yourself a great holiday! :)

      Happy Holidays, marto!

      "If you're really worried, host your own mirror/CPAN::Mini."
      I'm a good way into that, already. I'm setting up hardware for 3 complete mirrors.

      But not really worried, or anything. More curious, than anything else. Still no mention as to why. But, whatever.

      Hope you have a great Christmas, marto.

[hippo]: For a self-contained application which can therefore ensure thread safety it seems like a sensible approach.
[choroba]: No, if there are no threads, then the user wants to use MCE. If there are threads, the user can choose.
[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
