I'm of the opinion that if it ain't in core, then you need to specify it
as a dependency, in a manner that the versions of etc in core
can understand.  If you don't do that, then you have to accept that
people are going to think that your distribution is broken.  We've got
used to stuff that Just Works.

I don't have a problem with Module::Build.  I think it's a great idea,
it just doesn't get used right, largely because using it right would be
so damned inconvenient.  This is why I was so pleased that it might
become easily inc-able.  But until it is easily inc-able, and until it
Just Works like EU::MM does, I will consider it not ready for real-world
