Nice module! May I suggest a feature? Add an option to installation script to download and/or set path for the glyh list. This way, you don't break any licence (the file is available to everyone) and installation can be automated.

HTH, Valerio

    I've thought of that, but how do I integrate that with the CPAN.pm installation process when I want the default to be not to do it?

    Actually, thinking about it, I might provide an additional distribution whose installation always downloads the file, containing a stub module whose presence is detected by this one.

    Then a bundle which installs both distributions would solve things nicely. You either fire-and-forget CPAN.pm at the bundle or just get this module alone.

    How does that sound?

    Makeshifts last the longest.
