You should write something, not because it can or will ever be popular.. but because you like it. It's up toyou to distrib. people advise you so that it can be better, or more useful. it's up to you to accept the advice. Then again, if i followed everyone's advice, i'd hate coding all the time CGI.pm suffers from this in some ways.
