I love the idea of Mac::iTunes. However, as someone who tried to install the thing just a few days ago, it's not ready for prime time. There are so many freaking dependencies, some on modules that must exist only on Brian's personal box, that I couldn't get it working. Did I say "working"? I meant "installed". Personally, I just want to have an easy way to parse the XML files iTunes produces and have a nice object or two to play with. I shouldn't have to download half of CPAN and sync up with Brian's box to do that. I've seen this mentioned elsewhere on the web (an Apple mailing list, as I recall) so this isn't news.


I'd love to install it and test it out, Brian, but I don't have the time to resolve the excessive dependencies and hunt down unreleased modules.
