As for updating the POD, I wrote it 3 years ago and promptly forgot about it. This is the first time anyone's ever looked at it for production use, so I am a bit surprised at the . . . vehemence. :-)
Please send me an email and I'll try to get to it next week.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
