I agree with CI's feeling that an April Fool's joke should not be waiting space in what is normally considered to be a utility like CPAN. Although I will point out that there are a handful of modules that their respective authors describe as "curiousities" (such as Quantum::Superposition by Damian) that have a low utility value. This is not to say that they aren't useful; typically the programming behind the module is serious enough to be used as learning code, or there's an unseen but possible useful implmentation of the module - an example here would be using Q:S to actually work out how one would lay out a quantum computer and make sure that there's a reasonable approach to the problem solution in non-quantum space.

But yea, XML::Simpler doesn't offer either. It's a gag, and should have been limited to discussion groups like here or perlxml, or even something like an article at ORA (with an approiate post-fix to clue those in not already on the joke).

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important
