I had to decide the perl5 issue when beginning work on Majordomo 2.  For
what Majordomo needs, perl4 is simply a hindrance.  We needed real MIME
parsing and the choices were either to roll our own, try to use what's in
MHonArc, or "use MIME::Parser".  Guess which one I chose?

People who refuse to install another perl version would probably be
reticent to install a new MHonArc version.  It's not as if multiple perls
can't coexist.
