Um no, that's not what I said (or at least meant :-)

Modules that started off in CPAN, then got bundled into core, but which
continue being principally maintained by their author, should carry on
having their main home on CPAN, with bleed syncing from time to time.

I was objecting to a module that principally lived in and was developed in
bleed, one that I was heavily involved with, being rehomed to
CPAN so I could no longer directly apply my changes to bleed.

A walk of a thousand miles begins with a single step...
then continues for another 1,999,999 or so.
