It was decided that the whole CPAN thing just wasn't working out.  It was
getting too big (1.6 gigs), with too many authors (2700+) and all those
confusing package names.  Instead, CPAN is now using Internet technology
battle-tested by thousands of web sites around the world with easy-to-read
perl4 style code and every line commented for better understanding.  And
its all from one author, so you only have one person to blame.
