Pod feature request.
Message ID:

For most of today, I've been writing documentation on an in-house
perl module.  For some reason, I thought there was a pod directive
"=both" that would indicate that the following text should be 
processed by the perl compiler and included in the documentation.

An expectation of literate programming or something.

Anyway, I wrote my documentation that way only to discover when it
was time to test to make sure I didn't break anything that =both doesn't 

Well, it should.

Since this module is internal-only for the time being, I 
added a pre-processor to solve my problem.  However, the rest
of the world can probably benefit from same directive.

It appears there are a lot of POD-related modules.  If the specification
for POD gets changed, the following people have POD-realted modules in 
CPAN that aren't based on Pod::Parser:

Please consider this feature request.
