After doing some testing with my own revision of the third version of
this patch against blead, I belatedly realized that much of it has
already been applied to the development stream of Module::Build,
available via:

% svn co mb

which is rather far out of synch with blead.  Then there is a separate
branch of Module::Build that was made up to match what shipped with

% svn co mb510

This second branch is fairly close to blead, though there are some
differences in the pod and tests.

So we have a three-way merge on our hands, or maybe "only" two-way if
we assume blead has everything the 5.10 branch of M::B has plus a
little bit more.  I think it's important that we not apply any more
patches for M::B to blead until we get things synched up -- the merge
will just get worse if we put it off.

Ken, how can I help?
