Fair enough, but I'm not sure it's the same problem; Data::Dumper seems
like JAXSM [*].

What I'm up against is that to keep everything in the Cwd namespace, I
need the files, Cwd.xs, and Makefile.PL in the ext/Cwd directory.
BUT, if lib/ doesn't exist (and work), none of the extensions will
get built.  That means the module's files will have to be split between
lib and ext thusly:


Having a single module's files spread out that way seems a little messy.  
However, assuming that mess is the least smelly of the two, I'll roll
another patch accordingly.
