Add to this "Define required metadata for perl modules". I think Larry 
wants version and author as required at the very least.

FWIW, my current view of "The Module Plan" is for all modules to be 
identifiable via a module name/author ID/version triple. That's what the 
interpreter will use to distinguish internally between different usages of 
the same module if it needs to. That's subject to change if Larry decides 
differently, of course, but I don't see it getting anything other than more 
specified, not less. (Which isn't to say that you'll have to specify author 
and version when you use a module, just that the interpreter will use that 
data in case one module uses a different version of some module then 
another module does)
