I started work on this all something like 8 years ago with the idea of basically writing all the basics to a desktop system in Perl.

Unfortunately time and life happened and I've not had time to really muck around with this or really do any updates or maintenance on it.

There are glaring issues in bits of it that I've never had time to properly address and the like.

Sadly the best thing to do is to opt to remove the old and unmaintained stuff.

:(

Sounds sensible :-(

Sorry that this took so long.  I finally marked them as deprecated to be
removed on 2018-07-15 (to give at least some heads up to people in case someone
needs any of them).
