Since not all Parrot projects are languages, it would be nice to have a project skeleton generator morally equivalent to Perl's Module::Starter.

Given <project-builder> --module=Foo (for one possible usage example), the following minimal layout might be generated:

  • Foo/
    • lib/
      • Foo.pir
    • t/
      • harness.pir
      • 00-sanity.t
    • setup.pir

setup.pir would manage primary tasks such as build, test, and install.

Extra credit items could include: a flag to define the project as mostly PIR or mostly NQP; a Foo/bin folder whose contents would go into an appropriate location (/usr/local/bin, $PARROT_BIN, whatever); other standard project files such as README.
