in reply to Donít Repeat YourÖ version number

Extremely nifty, but there's one big BUT... It works due to what I'd call a buglet in EU::MM. As soon as that gets fixed, the show is over. So I wouldn't use it in published code.

    Itís just generally brittle. Itís not just EU::MM getting fixed that would break it. Apparently all the POD-aware tools have different parsing quirks: tinita mentioned above that Test::Pod barfs on it, and apparently Module::Build does too (each for different reasons).

    So no, itís not ending up in my CPAN code. But it made for an intriguing diversion for half an hour, so Iím still satisfied.

    Makeshifts last the longest.
