It has, actually. Several modules I wanted to use on this project have been using the passthrough style, and none of them used features of Module::Build. This cost me a fair amount of time, and it just seemed like such a waste since it could have been so easilly avoided.

    That's a pain. My sympathies. Don't suppose you want to name and shame :-)

      David Golden was kind enough to release a new version of Exception::Class::TryCatch with the option changed when I wrote to him. Then I hit some problems in the DateTime modules. I sent a note to Dave Rolsky about it. He did change it in one of his other modules in the past when asked.

        That's nice to know.

        (Look - a polite conversation around Module::Build! Perhaps we should frame it :-)
