Make sure to use 0.96_08 and not 0.96. It should install fine from CPAN.
It should not fail any unit tests and if so, please report them.

This is true, only due to lack of time (it is planned to resurrect it on
a new URL). This has however no consequences on the modules themselves.

Depending on what you are doing exactly, I would be interested to add
your code to Net::DRI if you want. Or work with you on extending it the
way you need it. Please get back to me in private if needed.
