This statement of yours, Rocco, is a complete fabrication, and you know
that, making it a lie.

I herewith challenge you publicly to prove this statement, or redact it,
on the same poublic forums you made your statement.

You obviously can't prove it, because you just made it up to push your
political agenda.

I have never willingly broken compatibility with modules I do not like,
and even if the case at hand could be construed to do so, it's only
because together with removal of the required functionality, I added an
error for existing users who would run into problems. And then, it would
still be only one case.

Rocco, I know you are pissed because you lose so much users over to
AnyEvent, but resorting to spreading lies like this publicly should have
been below your level of (surprising lack of) morality.
