If this is the case, please, please, please patch the POD for the module to clearly state it.
Another example of this is modules by TheDamian. Damian Conway has written some truly useful modules, but every time I consider using one of his works, I get a bit nervous and wonder "Is it safe to use this?". I refer to Categorized Damian Modules, but it isn't kept up to date. If he labeled each module in its documentation as to category, life would be much simpler.
I am thrilled when I am evaluating a list of CPAN modules and one of them says, "This module is deprecated. Use BLAH BLAH BLAH instead." It saves me the time of having to carefully consider it.
