As I said, this isn't about "right" at all.
This is about not screwing people's installability without warning.
I've spent weeks making sure Catalyst installs cleanly everywhere I can
get access to. I intend to spend more weeks doing so.
If you don't care about that, please feel free to stick to development
and I'll happily volunteer to take over the release management so the
people trying to make a living off perl development and deployment
aren't disadvantaged, because I'm one of them and I have better things
to do than rewrite tests because a bugfix blows away the installability
of perfectly functional modules.
