But if you have a look at the responses I recieved on CLPM to my post
(I didnt know about Perlmonks at the time) it was to say the least not a popular suggestion. However if you think it is a good idea I can have another look at it, and include 'fatal' with the defaults you suggest and post it here for review. (BTW I even reserved the namespace ex::caution on CPAN, but havent uploaded it yet. sigh.)

When to use Prototypes?
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
- a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
