pod2usage output options

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I write a lot of Perl scripts for custom network management purposes.  I am
implementing pod2usage to provide command line help.  I especially like the look
and feel passing my command line help through man.  I don't really care for the
default center header "User Contributed Perl Documentation" though.  Have you
received many requests for a way to declare in POD the values that should be
used by pod2man when it is called by pod2usage?  Specifically it would be great
to be able to declare the --section, --release, --center, --date, --official
options for pod2man within the pod itself.  The only way I have found to get
around this and still pass my command line help through man is to use Pod::Man
to write a man file in the local directory and then run man on the file from
within my script.
I realize that this issue spans multiple modules and would require a coordinated
effort for more than one programmer.  If there is an alternate forum to make
this request through, please let me know.

I already sent this as an email to Brad Appleton, who is listed as the author of
pod2usage on CPAN.  He thanked me kindly and referred me back to CPAN to find
the current maintainer of pod2usage.  His is the only name I found.
