I recently persuaded a friend to release some useful code to CPAN by
offering to deal with packaging it up into a distribution.

This involved running Module::Starter and an extra hour writing tests
based on the new module's documentation.

Having fiddled round with h2xs for creating pure Perl modules in the
past, I really appreciate how easy Module::Starter makes this.
