I’m not hating Pod::POM::View::HTML much. Pod::POM’s got a few
irritating parsing flaws, but none to terrible. They could be
fixed quite well by a reimplementation in terms of Pod::Simple
(Pod::Simple::POM?), which I generally like – but only for
non-conversion tasks. When the task at hand is a simple but
slightly customised conversion to another format, nothing’s near
as nice as subclassing Pod::POM::View or one of the existing
format subclasses. That’s even though its method factorisation
is really a bit too coarse-grained for optimal subclassability.

I’ve thought of undertaking such a rewrite, but honestly the itch
is not really bad enough to make me add another bullet point to
the list of project ideas.
