It is the point in this case, this is software currently under development

Yes, it's probably not best to remove *every* version of something.
On the other hand, CPAN is more like your local public
library than the Library of Congress; they can't
be expected to keep everything for all time.
If your code is "in the wild", isn't it already
functional, all dependencies met? Besides it's
generally a good idea to keep a virgin copy of
the software you use.
mentioned Backpan (.../AVATAR)
Oh, and finally, this would also be a place were
code abstraction would be a Good Thing ;-)
perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"
