shotgunefx has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Recently I had a problem with some naughty folk trying to DoS me. My first thought was to make a monitor for connections using netstat. I of course reached for CPAN and to my suprise, there was no equivilant. I thought for sure someone would make a wrapper. I decided to roll my own and posted the snippets I used.

My question is... is this something worth making into a coherent structure and posting it to CPAN? Is there an equivilant that I missed?
