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

Your module appears to be a source code filter operating on general purpose perl. Such things should never be released. They're evil, nasty things and cause problems for other people.
Tosh! If that were really the case, why is Perl 6 getting some seriously powerful tools for writing source filters? Source filters are hard to do well because general Perl is hard to parse, but that's a very long way from saying that they are evil and should never be released. Looking at the syntax shown in the module in question (and the performance figures claimed), I'd certainly be interested in using it in my own work.
