Ive had similar issues as you are discussing here, and the approach ive come up with to work around them is as follows:
And now you need to edit the various files created by h2xs. Dont forget to add the /t directory to the MANIFEST, change the A.U.THOR name, specify your prerequisites in the makfile.pm and add documentation.
Once all of this is done,(assuming i havent forgotten some niggling but important detail) your module should be _both_ useable as normal and usable as per make. Thus once you are happy with the module you should be able to say
A caveat however: this technique has the problem that you can only be developing 1 module at a time in each path/class heirarchy. Ie you cant work on Foo::Bar and Foo::Baz at the same time (the makefiles and etc would overwrite each other.)
To be honest, normally I develop a module in the devlib _without_ using h2xs first. Then I use h2xs and copy everything but the autogenerated .pm file into the appropriate directory.
As always with advice like this: YMMV
