I think

"With the rapid changes in Class::DBI and the author's refusal to participate
in the community or effectively liaise with developers of dependent apps to
ensure that plugin authors are warned of changes in order to avoid breakage,
a substantial number of users have frozen their production systems at 0.96
or 3.0.1. This is designed to make that easier, and to allow other users of
the same system to use whatever Class::DBI version they prefer."

pretty much covers it. Tony's broken every promise he's made to the Sweet
team about warning us prior to significant changes and been entirely
unapologetic about it, so while sri didn't tell me he was planning to do
this I can't say I'm upset about it.
