And yet when I upgraded a bunch of my ~/ lib setups to latest MB and EUMM
recently the MB change fucked over anything using a Build.PL from then on
but all the EUMM PREFIX-based stuff just carried on working.

Anyway, now I have local::lib which automates away this crap so I can't say
it bothers -me- as a user anymore. But I still won't ship dists that rely
on anything that isn't core or I can't bundle easily.
