Thanks, it really works (more tests to come but it looks good so far)!
I had only some easy to fix problems:
1. in line 434 of I had to replace 'exit' with 'CORE::exit'
2. A minor doc error/misunderstanding: From the example in the POD it
   looks as if the code_ref gets the value as the first parameter:
   sub fetch { my $url = shift ...
   but I get ($index, $url), so the value is the second parameter, not
   the first.
3. My original code returns objects Storable has problems to digest. I
   will have to partly rewrite my code to only return data that is
   easyly serializable and (re)build the objects later.

Thanks for this fine module!
