    Do you think it is an important part of the CPAN distro? It was
    intentionally left out because it's dated, unused, unneeded. It's just
    kept in the CPAN distro because it has some educational merits.

    Good catch!

    Sorry, I didn't know the omission was intentionally. I've no
    conviction one way or the other. I just thought it was an oversight.
