I'm beginning to understand you. But I still fail to see how that would
help e.g. a FreeBSD user. Under FreeBSD you would always use the port
for Mime:Tools. And this port relys on the CPAN distribution.
Unfortunately this is not fixed so the port is not fixed. Of course I
will write to the port-maintainer (again) to patch the CPAN stuff but
that solution will only help FreeBSD guys. 

There are only two good solutions for the problem:

1. Get CPAN and the original module corrected.

2. Do not use it anymore but use something else instead.

Frankly 2 is not really an option, is it?
