Your question is rhetorical, correct? :-) Let me have a shot at it

   1. A::D doesn't depend on RMS' or anyone's opinion on OSS license
      compatibility issues for being legal (as a CPAN package that is
      - "compiled" RPM or deb packages would be another matter)
   2. A::D can automatically fetch the very last version of Dojo (it
      can parse the http://dojotoolkit.org/ homepage), meaning that I
      don't need to repackage for every new version of Dojo. Actually
      one can even upgrade Dojo *in place* from under A::D's feet
      using rm -rf and unzip and it will just work
   3. A::D is available on CPAN right now (well, real soon now)
   4. A::D uses Module::Build :-]
   5. A::D comes with POD documentation complete to the point of
   6. Alien:: is arguably the correct namespace for Javascript bundles
      (there is hardly any Perl in there)

Sorry for not reading the list thoroughly enough - I'm new to this
whole Dojo business, that's why. How about I withdraw my module as
soon as HTML::Dojo recaptures points 1 to 3? Or conversely I can spend
some time to blend my API into that of HTML::Dojo.
