As a suggestion, if the PodViewer parser finds commands or whatever that it doesn't understand, it might report on them within the TextView text it produces, rather than carping. Chances are that stdout/stderr are going somewhere the user won't see, so the viewer window will be a better place to report problems. pod2man these days makes an ERRORS section at the end of the document for errors from the parser etc. I suppose there'd be a choice between a message at the point the problem occurs, or summarized at the end. I expect most problems are fairly minor things and might as well be just at the end.
