I voted the post down for the general reason of "what's the point?" In this case, your post was too brief for me to get a 'point' out of it. I want a motive. I wondered:
  1. What's the context? Why should we care that you want this module? It might be nice (although I think scp would be more useful), but
  2. Why are you telling us? Who is the intended recipient of this message?
    • Someone who could would write this module? I expect most people write modules when they need them, so it's unlikely you'll get a module this way.
    • Someone who agrees with you that it would be nice, but can make no contribution toward realizing that goal? Well, what's the point of that? I would understand the point of a manisfesto intended to make others agree with you, but this is just a statement. It's like walking up to someone on the street and saying, "World peace would be nice." The person will probably nod and agree, and once alone wonder why you bothered to tell her/him so.
There you have it. I voted it down because it wasn't clear to me what purpose it served, even after asking a few other people. I will probably make fewer -- votes of this type in the future because I originally started making them because of the posting bonus, when it was fairly safe to assume posts you couldn't see a point to existed just to give their owner a little exp.

As to whether such a module exists, I have no idea as it's not something I've ever looked for.

I have no problem with explaining my votes, but I prefer to wait for a request to do so. Some people want to hear it and some people don't.

Ps. osfameron, ssh is 'secure shell client', which provides encrypted communication between two hosts over an insecure network. scp ('secure copy') allows encrypted data transfer.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
