I would just like to say that I held that view for many years, as some more than others (Chip) knows all to well :) However there are times when modules need to be added. I have been hounded for years by many (p5pers and others) to include linet into the core distribution. I resisted, and the pumkings respected those wishes. However now my view has changed (I will not go into why) and so Jarkko has included libnet into 5.7.2. At the same time I now wish that I had let it stay in when Chip first added it back in 5.004, but as they say that is history. Graham.
