How come not answering for two days qualify as "being MIA"?  Don't you 
have real work besides your free software contributions?  I do, and it 
always takes priority, especially for such a minor "issue" as the one 
you're referring to (indirect is no more broken that it was with 5.28).

I decline your request for perms.  I'll publish a new release when I 
have some time.

The Perl community sure knows how to reward contributors that spent 
countless hours of free work with these kinds of gems.  Such a shame...
