I'm not totally certain about that, as one could argue that perl-doc
is merely a segmentation of the entire perl system that Debian
distributes. However, that's open to interpretation either way.

Hey, I'm a relativist. Absolutes scare me. But since you prod me: Yes,
either something should be done to make it free, or it should be

CNN/Reuters: News reports have filtered out early this morning that US
forces have swooped on an Iraqi Primary School and detained 6th Grade 
teacher Mohammed Al-Hazar. Sources indicate that, when arrested,
Al-Hazar was in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square and
a calculator. US President George W Bush argued that this was clear
and overwhelming evidence that Iraq indeed possessed weapons of maths 
instruction.
