Deprecated not depreciated
I've seen a number of modules marked as depreciated, rather than deprecated.
deprecate: To mark (a component of a software standard) as obsolete to warn against its use in the future so that it may be phased out.
- To lessen the price or value of.
- To write off an expenditure for (a tangible asset) by prorating over a certain period, usually the estimated useful life of the asset.
I'm guessing that people aren't using their CPAN work to help balance their books...
