in thread Passing Dynamic Value to Test::More tests

That's a great point. I use that pattern also for when I may want to skip a test file entirely if a test dependency isn't available.

use Test::More; eval { require Some::Crazy::Dependency }; if ($@) { plan skip_all => "Some::Crazy::Dependency not available"; } else { plan tests => 42; }

It could be done in a BEGIN block, too, but I find it more readable without them.
