	However, Bugzilla uses Email::Send, which is the whole reason it's in 
rpmforge. Bugzilla has a 1-2 year support life (or longer), so even if 
we switched to Email::Sender today (which we won't, because we just 
switched to Email::Send about 2 years ago and I hate to keep changing 
the libraries we're using--particularly when we've finally got this one 
working right--and also I have lots of other things to do), it would 
take 2+ years for all the supported versions of Bugzilla that use 
Email::Send to go away.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
