That was the no part of my answer.

Of course that's just my personal opinion, so if you were to release
Email::Simple::Shortcuts which where then to prove hugely popular
because people really want to type $mail->from rather than
$mail->header('from') then that's a told you so *plus* another step up
the leaderboard.

But then I remember how people bitch and whine about dependencies and
write their own accessors/wrappers rather than look to CPAN.
