Hi all,

The attached patch is simply for demonstration.

I was digging around in Module::Build's documentation and realized that 
some of it is created during `./Build dist`.  Unfortunately, I have 
Module::Signature installed, so it was constantly nagging me to sign 
the distribution.

Seems there should maybe be some way to disable that as a command-line 
option or environment variable.  Possibly something standard?

I haven't messed with signatures, so can't say what's the best way to do 
this.  For those of you who use distsign, how do you deal with somebody 
in the field building a dist for demo/hotfix purposes?

I'm not working on this right now, so I'm chucking the distraction over 
the fence for those playing the home game to ponder.

Turns out the optimal technique is to put it in reverse and gun it.
