Feel free to do so, my version of Alien::Dojo is not even moving in
the direction of long-term survival anyway.

And neither do I intend to use them to. Quoting myself:

In the wanting-to-argue department, I submit that reading the other
party's arguments in full sounds like a good first step.
For the record, what I am trying to do is
pick the first URI in the homepage that points to a Dojo zipball
Regexes are (as argued in the rest of the thread) one of the right
tools for *that* job. You wouldn't use them, I did. It doesn't matter
to the Catalyst community anyway since my module is going to be taken
over. Can we settle on these terms?
