in thread Ingy's "Swiss Army Light Sabre" - or, "how do you design your APIs?"

It's a personal value judgement.

Indeed, and as such is not a persuasive argument. Re-reading jonadab's post, it does seem he was simply relaying his own opinion. I suppose I could have ignored that paragraph in my reply altogether. Note that I wasn't really trying to persuade anyone to use IO::All, just pointing out a "weak argument," even though it now appears it wasn't an argument at all. I guess it's safe to completely ignore that part of my post as well. :-)

[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
