Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Christian Sánchez <csanchez@unplug.org.ve>

* Package name: libtask-weaken-perl
* Version: 1.02
* Upstream author: Adam Kennedy <cpan@ali.as>
* URL: http://search.cpan.org/~adamk/Task-Weaken-1.02/lib/Task/Weaken.pm
* License: GPL/Artistic
* Description: (follows)
One recurring problem in modules that use Scalar::Util's weaken function is that it is not present in the pure-perl variant.
While this isn't necesarily always a problem in a straight CPAN-based Perl environment, some operating system distributions only include the pure-Perl versions, don't include the XS version, and so weaken is then "missing" from the platform, despite passing a dependency on Scalar::Util successfully.
This restores the functionality testing to a dependency you do once in your Makefile.PL, rather than something you have to write extra tests for each time you write a module.
It should also help make the package auto-generators for the various operating systems play more nicely, because it introduces a dependency that they have to have a proper weaken in order to work.
