in reply to PREFIX patch for Module::Build

One thing to consider is using Test::More instead of Test. The use of Test::More is suggested by the Phalanx project. Also, a slow conversion to using Test::More to test core modules has been in the works for a while as well. Since Module::Build is slated to be part of the core in 5.10, it'd be nice to avoid having to redo the tests later.

    You're absolutely right, and I use Test::More in my modules. However, I used Test based on two considerations:
    1. The other testfiles in the Module::Build distribution used Test instead of Test::More and I felt that following their lead would be one less reason to deny the patch.
    2. Test is in the core for 5.003. Test::More doesn't enter the core until 5.005_03 (or so). I suspect that's the reason Ken Williams chose to use Test.
