Since it seems unlikely that this will happen anytime soon, and since 
we have no control over, PAUSE,, or CPANPLUS, 
perhaps we should focus on what we *do* have control over to try to 
come up with a solution that will *at least* put an end to the debate.

To my mind, that means one of two things:

1. Move mp2 to a different namespace.
2. Or drop support for mp1 upon the release of mp2.

Given that mp's numbers have been declining, mp2 does need to make a 
splash when it is released. But I don't think that all the negative 
stuff is the right kind of splash to ensure success.
