15:43 ether wow that dist is a ball of crack
15:44 ether why not just if ($] < ... ) {  #implementation 1 } else { # implementation 2 }  ?

22:57 kentnl ether: the other thing I found rather curious was the invocation of 'link' in Makefile.PL.
23:03 ether s/curious/breathtakingly naive/
23:03 ether "let's just make a hard link to the right file; EUMM will just find the file and install it!"
23:04 ether which might be okay except 1. EUMM already has a facility for installing filename a as filename b; 2. PAUSE needs to do static analysis of the whole dist
23:06 trs 3. not every FS supports hardlinks
23:06 * ether wonders how sane it would be for PAUSE to throw up its hands at dists using the 'PM' option in the dist, without an accompanying meta-provides
23:07 ether this dist also has two .pm files with the same namespaces in it, doesn't it...
23:07 ether that's probably what PAUSE barfed on here
23:07 ether although it woudl be nice to see its log output
