Must ... not ... bite, ... being ... trolled ... nooo...
Criticizing a method of evaulation while offering constructive suggestions is hardly a troll. What did you expect: "Golly, gee bsb, you sure are smart with your module red-flags and what-not, great work. I hope someday I can be as smart as you." (now that's the beginning of a good troll, but I'll get to the point)
HTML::* and CGI::* just seem to acquire more flaky modules than B::*, Devel::* or IO::*
90% of everything is garbage. This applies to modules as well, and since I'd wager there are way more HTML::* modules out there, and there's only so many useful ones that can be written, you get a lot of crap. Very few people are going to write an B::* program as their first module. It's the same reason why there's so more much crud Perl code around than python or ruby. More people, more crappy code. Simple.
Testing or it's absence is rarely evident
Automated tests should be provided.
