Take a look at the CPAN. Search for "Roman". There's "Roman",
"Math::Roman", "Text::Roman", "Convert::Number::Roman", etc...

Isn't this duplicated effort? :-|

Besides, this may prevent the user from having all the available
functionalities without installing all of those modules... :-| And I'm
sure this isn't the only case.

What can be done about it?

If I have an improvement that could go on some of those modules, should
I e-mail all of the authors? :-|
