It also screws  with the maintenance policy set in Maintainers.PL, but 
considering the magnitude of the change, that's the least of the problems.

Zefram: You're welcome to apply your patch to the git repository that I 
set up for doing CPAN releases from: 
If you let me know what your github user id is (there is a zefram, is 
that you?), then I'll add you to the committers there. I'm also happy to 
cut a release and/or organize PAUSE co-maint permissions for you.
