In the same vein as the above ideas, what about just adding it as another target in the Makefile? I confess I have no idea how hard this would actually be, but it seems to make more sense to have the ability to do 'make spell', for example, seperately from the tests.

    It's not too hard, but I prefer to add it as a test, while excluding it from the MANIFEST. That way I don't need to remember to run yet another make target when I prepare my distribution for upload.

      I get around that lazyness by having a release script that does it for me (which checks out the proper tagged branch from my subversion repository, Builds the distribution, runs all tests and checks, refreshes the metafiles, and only if all those pass, prompts me to go ahead and hand it off to cpan-upload). I'm a religious user of Module::Build's "Build testpod" -- and it's part of my script. I may see about writing a patch for Module::Build to use Pod::Spell (if available) for a "testpodspell" action that I can add in similarly.
