I don't know about the retitler, but I thought it was customary for editors to fire off a /msg when they do something like that.

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    Alas, custom and guarantee are not the same thing. It's important to ensure that people know their nodes have been retitled, I think, and simply doing so "customarily", but not universally, is a failure. In other words, I agree with davido's assessment (it's a good idea to include that functionality) and tye's assessment (we should err on the side of laziness — particularly appropriate, given that Laziness is one of the virtues of programming).

    print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);
