When I was moving to London months ago and it looked like our company
might have issues, I interviewed with them, too.  Seemed like a good
company.  I liked the guy I interviewed with, the interview process was
good and the interview went very well.  I was pretty sure a job offer
was in the bag, then the *real* issue came up:

  Interviewer:  why are you asking for £XXXXX salary?
  Ovid:  Because that's what the recruiter said you were paying.

They weren't willing to pay what the recruiter said they would pay and
I confess that I was a little disappointed in the recruiter.

It's a shame about the misunderstanding.  I thought things had gone
really well other than that.

In other news, aside from using CVS, their test suite apparently uses
PerlUnit, a project that I thought was long-abandoned, but apparently
is being developed again.  Unless things have changed significantly,
doesn't that mean that pretty much all of the Test:: namespace on the
CPAN is useless, or have things changed?
