Cool. I read about it (in LJ?) and promised myself to try it, as
I code Perl but not C. I'm looking forward to this package.

Does this link to XForms? If so, shouldn't it be GPL + exception
clause, otherwise it's an invalid license?
(This is a can of worms. I don't agree with this interpretation,
neither do lots of people, yet I have bug reports against some of
my XForms-linked packages for that very reason. I'm just trying
to spare you trouble down the road.)
