It's curious that in the same burst you rant about too many modules being on CPAN and having them poorly designed, but you offer no feedback at all on DBIx::XHTML_Table, which apparently has support for using an AoA to build the table, which I think is supposed by be one of the neat features of your module-- the easy ability to add a column.

My suggestion is that you if you are concerned about the proliferation of semi-useful modules on CPAN, look hard at all the alternatives to your own module that you could contribute to before starting yet-another.

I get the sense that many modules are maintained by primarily one person who would be glad to have help, and we would all benefit by having fewer high quality modules to wade through.

If you remain confident your module is filling a unique niche, I think the module-authors@perl.org mailing list is the appropriate place to ask about potential names.
