There are at least three libraries going by the name
I gather that the Perl library came first, and the other two are ports. However, they all have different maintainers and probably aren't perfect replicates in terms of functionality. Right now mechanize is a somewhat random mix of all three, but has wiki info from the Ruby library. There's also www-mechanize, that should have just Perl questions (
WWW::Mechanize), but has collected some Ruby and Python questions as well.
I'm not sure what would be the best thing to do with the base mechanize.
Objections? Desire to help?
