    [Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
    [Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
