Accidental remote-control module authoring

I seem to have accidentally written a CPAN module, and by remote control at that.

There’s been some discussion on p5p about perhaps making the next stable version of Perl (version 5.12) automatically enable strictures (and maybe even warnings).

Yves Orton (aka demerphq) mentioned that a few years ago he proposed a use caution; pragma. I pointed out that it’s already possible to write such a thing trivially in pure Perl. And, lo! Yves has already published an experimental ex::caution pragma. Neat!
