Yeah, I've been pretty busy with school and work lately and haven't
had time to monitor the list as well as I'd like to.

Perl is Perl and writing good Perl does generally mean using CPAN
modules. And I see you have added the dependency to swig/INSTALL.
Perhaps you should mention a specific version number that you have
tested as working, and make sure (at least manually, if not in the
test suite) that both the pure-Perl and XS implementation of
Param::Validate work?

(And we should make sure that when a version with this in it is
released, we don't forget to include the new dep in CHANGES, and
perhaps even proactively notify some of the packagers who provide the
bindings.)
