Yikes. Need to package all of CPAN nearly. I was using this as a
concrete example for writing the documentation about an RFP so I
should have mentioned that in the bug report. In any case, I will try
to work on this since asciio should be in debian and I will be
working with asciio's author hoepfully in Copenhagen so maybe we can
sort this out. Perhaps he can depend on fewer CPAN modules.
