...And/or Dist::Zilla shouldn't claim to automatically detect all Prereqs? I'll be filing a bug report. I do not take this as a mandate to remove autoloading a heavy routine that is only ever used when handling exceptions which should all be worked out by the time any code hits production...

Sorry for being snippy. I'm really pissed off that I put out a "stable" release that proceeded to fail nearly all tests (except mine of course). Having done so is not merely an embarrassment, but a disservice to the community! GAAAA!

Lesson learned: test in a virgin Perl environment that has nothing but core modules installed, and don't automate prereq detection.

    Ah, yes, I do run tests in a Perl installation that has just enough modules for "my" modules to work, for that reason. And no, I'm not a fan of Dist::Zilla, because at least for me, it automates too many things that I prefer to mess up manually.
