PLEASE -- Perl Language Extensions And Standard Exportables SPELL -- Standard Perl Extension Library :) LiSP -- Library of Standard Perl :-) ALPHA -- Annotated Library of Perl Heuristics and Algorithms PASCAL -- Perl Access to Standard Code And Libraries Must... stop... acronyms... addictive! > I like CPAN the way it is too.

There does need to be a "core" vs "standard library" vs "supported" vs "contributed" vs "unsupported" distinction (some of those may or may not be the same) though.
