Good to know.

I have started a bit of list;
* Test::Spelling (package created, sitting in debian's svn repo)
But that is just the list of CPAN modules that asciio depends on, not
their CPAN dependencies nor their operating system dependencies. I
will try to compose a list of CPAN dependencies.
I hope to hack on this the next week or so because I told the asciio
author (Nadim Khemir) that I would package it for him. Ha ha ha, poor
guy, he has no idea what a slacker I am. Now here I am, about to see
him in Copenhagen face to face. As you can imagine any help I get I
greatly appreciate. :)
