To avoid such problems with CPAN/CPANPLUS, I think that's
correct that all the prior RCs should be removed. The
problem is is that, even though, for example,
Apache::PerlSections in RC4 will be renamed to
Apache2::PerlSections, the CPAN/PAUSE indices map modules to
distributions, and so will keep older versions of
distributions around if they contain modules that are no
longer present in the latest version of a distribution.
