in thread scripts on CPAN

That makes a large amount of sense to me. I've been quietly grumbling for a long time that the scripts area on CPAN is very much a second class citizen - now I understand why.

Indeed, exactly those considerations are why a next version of PMEdit will go up as a module distribution rather than to the scripts area, so I guess in a rather arse backwards fashion the objectives of CPAN are being imposed and met. ;)

Thanks for the clarification. It would be nice if something like your explanation were promanent in the scripts area of CPAN.
