Oh yeah, it probably matters who is going to be using your code. My guess is that there are a lot of casual programmers out there trying to make CGI scripts. Since many people seem to associate Perl with CGI programming, this draws a relatively large proportion of not-exactly-experienced programmers to Perl (as opposed to, say, people taking up Sather).

So if you make something that will be at all appealing to the newbie CGI'ers, be prepared to do some hand-holding on issues that don't have anything to do with your module (or send 'em here!).
