Leaving aside my personal investment in the former, I think having
some OS "family" information maintained centrally could still have
some value.  But I don't feels strongly about keeping it or
deprecating it.

If EU::MM isn't using Module::Metadata already, I hope that we might
get it to eventually.  I'd like to have just *one* tool for toolchain
to use to parse stuff out of .pm files.  I'd suggest not deprecating
it yet.
