Well, that's true. Not sure I care that much; I just wanted to know if I was missing something here, and it appears I'm not. So that's good. Although there is another aspect of Config::General I wouldn't mind improving, so if I get around to submitting a patch for that I might throw in the other for free, as it were. <s>

Oh, believe me, I've been looking--although you did have one or two new ones on me in that list; thanx for that! But really Config::General is a great choice IMHO. Just that one thing I thought was a bit odd. But I'm over it now. :-)
