in thread is XML too hard?

That's all to well. Of course does artifcial mean to take something existing (conciously or unconciously).

But, IMHO there's more to a succesfull language/system than the sum of the parts.
Almost every language has its strong points which others lack. What I mean is that you don't necessarily get a better language by combining the strong points.

One major success factor is the evolution of a language. It has to adapt to its users - and Esperanto IMHO doesn't do that.
I'm comfortable using English as the lingua franca in the technical world. I most often prefer it to my mother tongue German for clarity and simplicity.
However I'm also aware that English has its roots (at least partly) in old germannic languages (Disclaimer: I'm no expert here - Input appreciated.) and thus is also based on other languages.

Well, from this point on I would repeat myself, as I just became aware of, but you get my point ;-)

[Your Mother]: Module::Install
[Your Mother]: :P
[LanX]: Moma knows best! ;-)
[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/
[LanX]: How to make a CPAN Module Distribution from 2002
[Your Mother]: Dist::Zilla is kind of the nuclear option. I set it up back in the day but it's really targeted at authors who are managing MANY modules and want to automate everything.
[erix]: perlancar should know ;)
