I missed the original mails that explained this.

And even if it is being rebuilt in a new way, why are we not 
retaining the existing name?

After all, CPAN doesn't change it's name every year - and with 
good reason.  Continuity is important in the name for a language's 
central code repository.

Sorry if this is recovering old ground.


Cheers,
