in thread ChainMap of Hashes on CPAN?

but having a well documented module on CPAN seems more efficient than writing, documenting and testing own code.

I disagree completely, and bad justifictions don't make the case.

Adding to the clutter of never-used modules that make up 50%+ of CPAN doesn't help anyone. Nor Perl's cause.

Better to have only 5000 useful modules than 25,000 of which only 20% are useful.

    Yeah, you're right!

    I fully support you starting BukPan - a server with personally approved modules! =)
