I already though about that, yes -- and not only once. I also thought
about adding myself as Uploader to the libnet-irc-perl package.

But I think my lack of knowledge about the IRC protocol does not
enable me to maintain it properly as upstream.

And since I already converted the one place where I need a Perl IRC
library, I don't care as much anymore as the frustration about the
whole issue may have suggested.

As I said, I'm sad that we discuss such things now and not before I
was urged to move away to different libraries. But that's past. (Well,
the frustation is still there, but I won't go back and the frustration
hopefully will go away.)

So, I'm not vetoing against a removal of libnet-irc-perl, as I don't
see an alternative, but I'm still unhappy about ditching it.
