Stas, please stop propagating this fairy tale. The danger is, that
people will believe you. This I call unfair propaganda as it tries to
put the blame on somebody else's shoulders. That's not a very
promising strategy to solve problems.

Listen carefully: it is very unlikely that PAUSE and CPAN get
''''fixed'''' as you call it. There is no solution at hand and 4
people who you know well and who in turn know the problem domain very
well have agreed and have told you so.

So please stop telling untruth.
