This wasn't intended to be a bug report, wish list, todo item, or message to the authors. It was a request for the users. I understand why "traditional" isn't the default and I'm not asking for it to be changed. I doubt most of the users are on the Module::Build list, but I suppose that's worth a try.
in reply to AUTHORS DO NOT SEE ANY OF THIS
in thread Module::Build users -- please use the "traditional" create_makefile_pl option
