[ANNOUNCE] Test::Simple/More/Builder 0.62

or
http://svn.schwern.org/svn/CPAN/Test-Simple/trunk
or
a CPAN near you.

This is an EMERGENCY RELEASE to fix Test::Builder::Tester.  

0.61 (actually 0.60_01) changed Test::Builder's failure diagnostic output 
format a bit.  Test::Builder::Tester was relying on the format of that 
output.  The failure of Test::Builder::Tester cascaded so a couple dozen 
Test modules relying on it would no longer install.  This cascaded to 
dozens, perhaps hundreds more CPAN modules relying on those test modules.

To solve the problem, Test::Builder::Tester has been repaired to handle the
new output as well as continue to handle the old.  It has been temporarily 
absorbed into the Test-Simple distribution so Test::Builder and 
Test::Builder::Tester remain in sync.  If Mark Fowler agrees it will be
made permanent.

Anyone using 0.61 should upgrade to 0.62.

The only other known module effected is Test::Class.  Its tests are broken
because it relies on the output of Test::More and does not use 
Test::Builder::Tester for some tests.  The author has been notified.

    * Absorbed Test::Builder::Tester.  The last release broke it because its 
      screen scraping Test::More and the failure output changed.  By 
      distributing them together we ensure TBT won't break again. 
    * Test::Builder->BAILOUT() was missing. 
    - is_deeply() can now handle function and code refs in a very limited 
      way.  It simply looks to see if they have the same referent.
