Actually, the problem is that Smart::Comments uses the (soon-to-be-core) version.pm module for its versioning, but the PAUSE indexer is not yet able to understand these new-style version numbers. So CPAN.pm ignores the more recent upload and finds only Autrijus' original release. :-(

    The latest Module::Build release has the same problem - it treats '0.0.2' as a string, not a number, so you get a lot of "'0.0.2' is not a number in ..." warnings. I ran into that when doing work with Contextual::Return.

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
