I should point out that, over the long haul, we've had excellent
cooperation from Darren and debian.  Certainly lack of time has often been
a problem on one end or the other or both, and sadly our release schedules
have never been even close to in sync but overall it's worked well.

In the past, Chip or I would often be active either at the Debian end or
the perl end (or both) to help keep things in sync.  But lately,
everyone's busy with other things.

So yes, Simon, you're right, we have some catching up to do.  But it's
still appropriate to pipe up and thank Darren for all that he's already
done over the years.
