Thanks for this writeup. The main trouble that keeps me away from EPIC so far is its script-centric approach. Most (almost all) of my Perl development is on modules and their test suites, and I haven't found a good way to wedge that model into EPIC in a way that lets me work efficiently on things.
Has anyone else figured out a good solution for that? I think it might require a custom builder that invokes ExtUtils::MakeMaker or Module::Build to get things built in blib/ and knows how to invoke tests properly, etc.
