We're so close to release that I think reverting would open up more problems than it would solve.  MLEHMANN and his defenders are going to complain regardless of what we do.  We've lived with the code in its current state, so we have a fair idea of what its impact will be.  Unless someone wants to revert in a branch and test most of CPAN against that branch, and unless such a process has demonstrably better results than the current state of blead, I think we should proceed on course.

Let's face the music and dance.
