Subject: Please consider making MIME::Parser::tmp_recycling() a no-op
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 611b
Hi, the tmp_recycling() method was removed from MIME::Parser in 5.420_01. This broke at least Request Tracker <http://bestpractical.com/rt>; there's a fix in 3.6.5 but earlier versions don't work with current MIME-Tools packages. A bit of googling shows that the method is also used in Mail::SpamTest::Bayesian (on CPAN), mentioned in the SOAP::Packager documentation (CPAN, SOAP-Lite) and quite a few user scripts. Please consider making the method a no-op, possibly with a deprecation warning, instead of simply removing it. Thanks for your work on MIME-Tools, -- Niko Tyni ntyni@iki.fi Debian Perl Group

Ok, I've made it a no-op and will be uploading 5.425 later today. Note that as far as I can tell, the tempfile recycling feature never actually worked in the first place.
