in thread Should I list core modules as dependencies?

I don't remember seeing any wishlist items bug reports about someone wanting non-core dependencies hilighted
Why report wishlist of you can just edit your makefile/build.pl ?
OTOH, scandeps doesnt list core modules by default
I tested, it claims it does not, but it does (it reported base, Carp, Encode, List::Util for me) However seems it doesnt list non-dual-life modules.

    Why report wishlist of you can just edit your makefile/build.pl ?

    You said None of CPAN tools can clearly show that module use just a few non-Core dependencies, and instead shows long-long tail of core modules and testing modules.

    You said , these things don't have this feature I want, so I prefer to see make incomplete Makefile.PL/Build.PL

    How is editing Makefile.PL/Build.PL so it becomes incomplete, preferable to improving "CPAN tools to clearly show that module use just a few non-Core dependencies"?

    So instead of fixing one or two or three tools , to ease fears of dependencies, you prefer incomplete Build.PL/Makefile.PL?

    incredible
