It's a really boring module which makes a frustrating dependency problem go away. What more could you possibly want from an Alien:: dist? Thanks to Schwern and Matthew for handling this bit of thankless plumbing.
The only thing I see wrong with this module is that some of its users report installation problems here on the CPAN ratings site instead of using the bug tracker ( rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Ali... .)
