in reply to Why I hate Dist::Zilla

The namespace::autoclean changes between a couple of versions were painful for a lot of people. I believe the real solution to this sort of thing is improved dependency tracking, but doing things better requires a huge change to the CPAN ecosystem and Perl 5 module management and loading, so it'd take a few years even if the effort were to begin today.

With that said, Moose's error messages are my least favorite part of Moose.

    I'd like to know a bit more about the problems with namespace::autoclean changes.

    But I'd really like to hear your thoughts on viable approaches to dependency tracking. Please do elaborate.

[thezip]: something like: $Map_Request = <value>; etc. should work
