Version numbers that go backwards
Message ID:
The modules CGI::Fast and CGI::Util have version numbers in
perl-5.8.3-tobe that are less than they where in 5.8.2.

[gisle@caliper src]$ grep VERSION perl-5.8.{2,x}/lib/CGI/
[gisle@caliper src]$ grep ^\$VERSION perl-5.8.{2,x}/lib/CGI/
perl-5.8.2/lib/CGI/$VERSION = '1.31';
perl-5.8.x/lib/CGI/$VERSION = '1.3';

I think they should be bumped to 1.05 and 1.4 instead.  The CGI::Fast
module has no other changes than the version number change.
