IMHO, if anyone - a user, ActiveState, etc is getting test failures on
a released package, it is their responsibility to report it via email,
irc, rt.cpan.org, or whatever other reasonable means.  You can't
expect module authors to read minds and/or google for test results
published by other people.  If someone doesn't feel like reporting a
problem, then they can't very well complain about it not being fixed.
