That dist is a plugin to the poorly named WordList distribution by the same author. Wordlist itself looks like a system to filter a set of words for games which actually sounds like it could be useful in a general sense but I'd never find it with this namespace choice. I say the bigger problem is deciding not to bundle these plugins with that main dist itself; they've released several lists of words this way in a number of languages already.

    WordList began as a response to Games::Word::*. I wanted a namespace that is more general instead of gaming-associated, and wished that the implementation modules have a faster startup time. Assuming I read your comment correctly, I believe I've cleaned up the namespace so that plugins (roles, base classes) are moved out to WordListRole::*, WordListBase::* and all my WordList::* modules are actual wordlists.

    OK, so I indeed misread your comment. You're saying that it's better that all word list modules are bundled together in a single distribution. And later when I want to add a single new, possibly tiny, word list, I have to release another version of this gigantic WordList distribtution with tens or possibly hundreds of existing, non-changing word lists? That's precisely what I'm avoiding to do. Besides, some of the word list modules are dynamic e.g. WordList::DBI and it depends on DBI. I don't want to make the main WordList distribution itself depend on DBI or other additional modules that are only relevant to one or a few word list modules.
