in reply to Is Module::SafeVersion a Waste of Time?

When writing the AnnoCPAN code, I decided to ignore module version numbers altogether and only use the distribution version number from the distribution filename (using the heuristics in CPAN::DistnameInfo). I didn't want to get into the headaches of doing eval's or heuristics to try to find out a module's version number. I don't install or trust the modules in any way, so Schwern's argument wouldn't apply. Therefore I would have happily considered a module such as Module::SafeVersion; even if it is accurate only 99% of the time, that's better than nothing (which is what I have now).

[Discipulus]: anyway once I proposed an automatic font decrease for post below -1, stepping every 5 votes: i'm still thinks it's a good idea but dunno if feasible
[shmem]: ...emulated dual in english
[shmem]: Discipulus: has that been in the CB? or in a PM node proper? for the latter case, can you provide the ID?
[Discipulus]: you seriously can use their in this way in eng?
[Corion]: Meh. $effin_bad_system has an interface breakdown and then loads events in parallel with events overtaking one another instead of being processed sequentially
[shmem]: Discipulus: dunno, but we do all the time ^^
[choroba]: Discipulus I was taught so by a Londoner
[shmem]: Corion: very clear case of missing sequence number
