Oleg, if I understood correctly, your concern was about inputs.

What's your take on inputs then?  If there is anything else, please go
ahead, I can try to address those issues.

I don't have deep knowledge of Perl either so there might be some more
issues I haven't noticed yet.  But I think those can easily be patched
in the future when we have more user feedback.

I think it's better to have a package that behaves well in the general
case than not having a package at all.
