RFC CGI.pm refactoring
Interesting. If nothing else, because I was pondering whether to do this exact same thing, and even more interesting, I was also gonna use the name CGI::Simple. :)
I use CGI.pm all the time, but I only use a very minor portion of the module, more specifically it is usually the header method, parameter parsing and redirects. Sometimes, some other minor stuff too, but that is about it. So why should I pull in the whole of CGI.pm, especially when web programming should be as fast as possible? Yes, I know about mod_perl and all that, but sometimes that is not possible, and sometimes it is not worth the effort - doesn't mean you shouldn't optimize when you can.
Do upload it. I for one will use it. Thanks for the effort. I appreciate it. :)
