Of course perp is a better option going forward. And I get to say that
because I wrote it :>

As for considering "actively maintained" as a metric for software
quality, what does this really mean? Is a project that makes a flurry
of releases, always in constant flux, changing specifications, creeping
featurism, really in some way better than a similar project that is
stable, mature, proven, working well, and not in need of constant fixes?
