It just goes to show that just because a module is in CPAN, or even in
the standard distribution, doesn't mean it's "industrial quality".
Often code was good enough for the purposes of the author when he
wrote it, but not necessarily for you in any specific application.

Reuse code - but only after you study and test the modules you're reusing!
