they sure used to be, but due to the mechanism of distributing .par's
via CPAN, we can only provide one implementation per Perl version and
platform anyway.

It's quite simple to generate a .par:

tar -xzf PAR-Packer-0.982.tar.gz
cd PAR-Packer-0.982
perl Makefile.PL
make par (this also runs the tests)

Thanks in advance!


P.S.: Thanks to Cosimo who already generated a .par for 5.10.
