in reply to Fixing broken CPAN modules without author cooperation

Upload a fixed instance of the module under the same name and with an incremented version number. It will be glaringly labeled "*UNAUTHORIZED*" and not fully indexed. But it is still available for download and adds to the demonstration of how CPAN currently stressing ownership far above collaboration interferes constantly with getting CPAN modules improved. Maybe those with the power to make even minor changes to how the CPAN infrastructure works will eventually respond to tons of "unauthorized" improvements being uploaded. So far, they seem pronouncedly uninterested in even acknowledging the problem.

[hippo]: I always wonder how well the Asterix books work in other languages given that maybe 80% of the humour is some sort of word-play. How far do the translations differ?
