Hi all!

As you may have noticed many wikipedia pages have templated navigation blocks
at the bottom, e.g:

* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:FOSS

* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Perl

* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Web_frameworks

Since I've found the concept useful, I created a set of custom Perl 5 modules
to generate them as part of my personal website's custom static site generator:

*

(you can see them in action, styled with my atrocious CSS skills, here:
https://www.shlomifish.org/meta/nav-blocks/blocks/ )

Before I make the code more generic and CPAN-worthy and better documented - is
there already something in CPAN for that so I can build upon? Note that the
code is original, and I use an Apache 2.0-for-code / CC-by-nc-sa for
text+images/etc. blanket licence for the site's sources.
