As started today in this thread
, there seems to be a recognizable issue that CPAN doesn't really like distributions without .pm files (searching doesn't work, namely).
I don't intend to bother people behind CPAN with my problem (but possibly I should?), so I've got an idea that whoever was bitten by this feature, would start including a dummy .pm file in the distribution that doesn't have any other modules.
So, the question is, what would be the best namespace for it? I was thinking script::, Dummy::, and (I think the best is) bin::. Namely, if all you have in your tarball
is bin/myscript and Makefile.PL, then have lib/bin/myscript.pm and enjoy being found as bin::myscript . I think there's something in this idea, so I'd really like to hear opinions.
