I'm not sure I understand why this fix should be necessary.  2 is numerically
equivalent to 2.000000, and quoting a $VERSION assignment should not make any
difference (since there is no underscore involved).  What version of CPAN do you
have installed that misses this?  Do you have the full XS release of
Text::Balanced (and hence already installed?
