Subject: Please make Alien::Tidyp a dependency
HTML::Tidyp needs the tidyp library however, many Linux distributions do not have packages for tidyp most notably Ubuntu and Debian. Please make Alien::Tidyp a dependency of HTML::Tidy. Alien::Tidyp will automagically install tidyp. This would make things much easier for users who would avoid the need to debug install failures of HTML::Tidy due to a missing library. These failures are all the more confusing because often times HTML::Tidy is being installed because it is a dependency of another module not because the user installed it directly. Even if a user knows that she needs to install tidyp for HTML::Tidyp to work, installing tidyp from source is a hassle. At the very least the HTML::Tidyp documentation should mention Alien::Tidyp. -- Thanks, David
