POE 0.2802 (CPAN) added dynamic loading for POE::Loop classes. They don't need to be hardcoded into POE::Kernel anymore. Matt Cashner suggested in IRC that we split the POE::Loop classes with external dependencies into separate distributions. Benefits: Smaller base distribution. Fewer install questions. Less temptation to install big things that are seldom needed. Drawbacks: Extra steps for people who want the extra event loops. Mailing list results: Proposed: Rocco Caputo (20 April 2004) Accepted: Matthew Trout (20 April 2004) Suggested Bundle::POE::Gtk, etc. Accepted: Matt Cashner (20 April 2004) Suggested using dependencies. No dissenting opinions. Moved to RT for implementation, 9 May 2004. -- Rocco Caputo
