Actually, so far as I can tell no you don't.

You use the approach the PAUSE indexer uses. EUMM just requires the module
and calls ->VERSION on it so far as I can tell.

Well, you use something similar to the approach. PAUSE does much fun stuff
with safe compartments.

Not that much of this really matters now; existing old M::B installations
will remain the lowest common denominator for some time, and in any case
I suspect there are very few things that will work for PAUSE but not for
M::B, and if it doesn't work for PAUSE then whether EUMM handles it correctly
is fairly academic to my mind.

(I've been doing some research on this recently for Other Purposes :)
