|I wrote this to discuss another thing: what you think about right attitude, goal and priorities used while developing reusable software like CPAN modules. Do you agree reliability and security must be 1st and 2nd priorities, or not and why?
If that is truly what your asking, you sure went out of your way to hide it...
Reliability and security must be 1st and 2nd priority to all CPAN authors? Of coarse not, generalizing any statement like that is folly. Blindly deciding to make reliability and security a priority without taking into account the purpose of a module is going to result in poorer programming in the long run. Each module's priority should be based on its purpose.
For example, why should the author of Acme-Apace-Werewolf make reliability and security a priority of his module? Technically, it doesn't even need to compile to serve its purpose.
