additional thoughts about the new packages
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Two things occurred to me while I was mulling over a paper I'm writing:
1) Data::Dumper will need to be repackaged as a perl-5.004 specific
package. Currently perl-5.005 conflicts, replaces, and provides it.
This won't be good enough since the XS bits will the 5.004 stuff when
running under 5.004.
2) We need to add /usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/5.004 to perl-5.004's path.
Otherwise, the various modules that are compiled and installed under
the non-versioned Perl won't work.
