Are you demeaning people who write code for you for free?  If so, I
think you would like the world a lot better if CPAN authors just stopped
doing anything.  That way you wouldn't get upset when they don't meet
your unrealistic expectations.

As I said on another list, whenever you find a problem with a module,
*it's your fault* and *it's your responsibility to fix it*.  That should
keep your expectations realistic.
