Hi Martin,

While I agree with much of this paragraph I'd just like to chime in
and say that perl-HTML-Parser is a bad exmple because we use a custom
version of it. I got most of the changes we need accepted back into
the mainline version but the is a small patch that we need, otherwise
printing will have more issues.

(The patch is documented in loncapa/doc/otherfiles/perl-modules.txt)
