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: tinitamentioned 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.
