Re: this whole stupid thing (was Re: State of the Art wrt XML/XSL.)

Wow!  I'm only getting 6.4KB/s download from daft.com where I get over 
240KB/s from the official Debian sites.  If you want any level of 
testing for this new version of Perl then I'd suggest you move it to 
unstable ASAP.  I doubt the majority of people using unstable will be 
waiting around for the half hour it takes to download from daft, but 
what do I know...
