in thread When is it better to NOT release a new module?

The fact that half a dozen other modules do the same thing means that those modules solve the problem poorly in some peoples opinion. In fact, enough people found the solutions poor that the module got re-invented over and over again.

Perhaps it's just another manifestation of caring about the color of the bikeshed. The sheer number of config file parsers on CPAN proves this is a primal instinct. :-)
