	Okay, if you want to investigate the possibility of making Bugzilla
CPAN-installable and come up with a plan for it, then I'm open to the
possibility. I don't want to put it up on CPAN if we're eventually going
to abandon it there for unfeasability, though--I think that it would be
worse to have an abandoned package there than no package at all.

	Yeah, that's true for sure. :-)

	Okay, sounds cool. :-)
