Whoa, I never said the list owner would be exposed to that! That'd be
cruel and inhumane. :) Guess I should have made that clear.

Mmmm, IMO, too much of the existing Majordomo code is trying to work
around perl4 bugs or restrictions. I have absolutely no qualms about
Majordomo 2.0 requiring perl5.002. Perl5 is a couple years old now
and is far better than perl4.
