Though maybe not, since my module seems quite a bit more basic than yours, as it doesn't support any of the extensions and leaves a lot more up to the user to implement.

I'd probably have based my module on yours, if I'd found yours on the CPAN when I was looking. That might have influenced my interface. It might also be that I wouldn't have been inspired then to put mine on the CPAN, if yours was there already. Dunno. I don't think I'll take mine down now, though, since as you point out it implements more.

I'm curious, though, why you insist that your module is alpha. What necessesary features does it still lack?

It's alpha because it's less than three months old, and I'm pretty much the only person working on it (though I did get a one-line fix sent to me from a person using the code once already). It's mostly complete now, and I should probably graduate it to beta status one of these releases. There are features it still lacks. stopserver and restartserver methods are lacking, and when I get those working I'd like to augment the sample proxy with a control script to start and stop it. APOP is not supported yet. I still need to recheck RFC 1939 to make sure I've implemented every MUST. It has been reported that on some perls on some platforms $EOL needs to be changed to "\r\n" to work correctly, but that breaks it on Mandrake Linux (my development platform) and I still need to figure out how to automatically detect which way to go.

There are useful things that can be done without any of these features, of course. Currently my development is focusing mostly on the sample scripts and testing, so I guess with the next release I could mark it beta.
