Please move Perl News from top to leftovers.

Please consider adding three new sections "New2Perl", "Perl 6", and "Subroutine Library" to the top.

I think these new sections would better classify some continuously recurring questions.

The "Subroutine Library" section is not like the snippets or Code Catacombs (but perhaps belongs under the catacombs). It would be classified, ready to use 'cut & paste'-able subroutines anyone can call for frequently asked how-to-do-its! The Monks could even bake-off subroutines and the first, best submission left standing as the Monks best efforts (based on XP?) gets promoted into the Perl Monks Subroutine Library.

I think there are a lot of wasted-cycles by higher level Monks reanswering the same questions over and over and over. I've searched this site for solutions, but until I discovered SuperSearch my searches were empty or returned too many hits. Using SuperSearch I still chase lots of links, I'm mostly looking for code that already works. It's hard to arbitrate one suggestion over another and usually they are snippets that I cannot always understand how to incorporate. I realize we cannot make a subroutine for every situation, but having some library of reusable code would help newer users.

BTW I'd like to see someone spend time reorganizing the sublinks in Code Catacombs in ASCIIbetical order. A few sublinks are sorted, most links sublinks are not.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
