Btw, if the majority wants to start uploading Ruby, Python and Lua

I thought of that, but it sounded very broad to me (e.g. assembly
language, compiled binaries that can't be used b Perl, etc).
In any case, if most people agree with the general principle of renaming
CPAN, we can have a Condorcet vote. Condorcet is a method whereby you
rank all the options in order of preference and Condorcet selects the
compromise candidate. Unlike the antiquated voting system that most
countries use, Condorcet does not suffer from split votes.
