>Why not add pmdesc to the standard distribution?

I've thought about sprucing up and distributing all the pmtools with perl,
but to be honest, the distribution is already very large.  People have
asked that about ppt as well.   Besides the size problem, there's also
the synchronization and testing problem.  If only the CPAN respository
and the CPAN.pm module were more accommodating of programs and suites
of programs instead of just plain modules, this would be a lot easier.
And no, that isn't meant to be a dig into the maintainers of the above.
