If that's an argument to put modules doing rather trivial things
into the core distribution, why stop at File::Slurp? Why not just
include the whole of CPAN?

The core distribution is already bloated beyond belief, and IMO,
File::Slurp has not much to offer. It's replacing idioms of 1, 2
or 3 lines with 2 line idioms.

Mention File::Slurp in the FAQ, I'd say.
