That's a very good idea.  However, each time a new file is added
to the package, it has to be regenerated and the excluded files
removed again by hand, as find_dist_packages takes no arguments.

Hence, I still think that they are complementary; Module::Build->new
can take ('skip_index' => [ ... ]) and pass it to find_dist_packages
to denote things that should be skipped, as well as writing it to
META.yaml.  That gives us the best of both worlds.
