I would love to have some type of "x_icon" META attribute that either points to an image file within the distribution or a URL that is the icon for the distribution. Displaying that image on metacpan.org or stratopan.com would help give Perl modules a bit more pizzaz (something that software libraries typically lack). You could even go a bit further and specify the required size and format of the image.

You don't need approval for that. Just do it. Eg x_contributors.
