I was hoping (as upstream maintainer) that the newer version could get
into lenny as part of perl-modules. Perl IMO really needs another upload
before lenny; there's also the incredibly annoying warning bug that
affects anyone using Net::Domain.
Failing that, we could maintain a separate package. There are two scripts
provided, pod2man and pod2text, in addition to the modules. I don't know
if a podlators package should divert the scripts from perl or do something
else with them. Do we have any precedents? Unfortunately, pod2man does
need to be updated to accept the new -u option; pod2text doesn't have at
present any changes except (in 2.1.2) spelling fixes in the man page.
