27  Pip,
28
29  Based on the name alone, I think this should be the basis of the
30  framebuffer for ASCIIker.  Even if the name weren't so apropos, the
31  library itself looks really good to me in terms of how it's coded and
32  the API that it provides.  I think making a set of perl modules around
33  this and making a Term::Caca distribution would be the right thing for
34  me to do.

40  My only gripe is ... well the spelling.  I believe it should almost
41  always be spelled 'kaka'.  Both spellings have been understood &&
42  acceptable according to linguists for quite some time but... my
43  highschool friends && I agreed that the K makes it harder && harsher
44  ... && when you're discussing kaka... it should be harsh... it should
45  sound harsh... it should smell harsh.  The C is like a lame copout &&
46  should only be used by the uninformed or for temperament (which I have
47  never employed when referring to kaka).  Maybe it's like eskimos with
48  tons of names for snow.  I think of all sorts of stuff ... refuse...
49  somewhat affectionately yet recognizing the crap nature... in order of
50  use: kaka, dung, poop, crap, plop, slop, spit, stuf, shat, stul...
51  shit is reserved for extreme occasion.  These are all my 4-letter
52  variable names that have been with me for a long time.  This is deeply
53  rooted in me &&... I can't imagine ever accepting the C spelling.
54  It's weird... I could accept alternate spellings of any of the others
55  but I must protest for kaka.  I know it's rather difficult to take
56  this complaint seriously since it... well has no technical basis ...
57  but kaka is kaka... it's like KAKA!!!  I know that's a lame argument.
58  I'm not prepared to defend it more soundly... maybe the module could
59  be Term::Kaka that wraps libcaca?  I know that's probably weird but...
60  what else can I say?  It should be libkaka.

63
64=head2 but kaka is kaka...  it's like KAKA!!!  -Pip
65
66...as opposed to 'caca', and thus, Term::Kaka was born to make Term::Caca
67be, sound, and smell harsh.
