Extremely nifty, but there's one big BUT... It works due to what I'd call a buglet in EU::MM. As soon as that gets fixed, the show is over. So I wouldn't use it in published code.

    It’s just generally brittle. It’s not just EU::MM getting fixed that would break it. Apparently all the POD-aware tools have different parsing quirks: tinita mentioned above that Test::Pod barfs on it, and apparently Module::Build does too (each for different reasons).

    So no, it’s not ending up in my CPAN code. But it made for an intriguing diversion for half an hour, so I’m still satisfied.

    Makeshifts last the longest.
