[PATCH] update Pod-Perldoc to version 3.14_07
Message ID:
The following patch syncs bleadperl with Pod-Perldoc  3.14_07 release.
It accumulates the changes of 3.14_05, 3.14_06, 3.14_07 (CPAN-only
releases so far).

It includes
* the new switch for searching Perl predefined vars (which is -v,
after the old verbose/debugging functionality was renamed -D) (after
Ovid's patch)
* the shortcut suggested by Gisle ("perldoc intro" finds "perlintro.pod")
* a tiny bit of additional POD

Porting/ was updated too to reflect the new module maintainer.

Renée, I did not forget your recent patch. I only had to do that sync
up to 3.14_07 for a long time, and so I did it. Now we'll move

	* Development release 3.14_07
	* Pod::Perldoc now has POD
	* so does Pod::Perldoc::BaseTo and Pod::Perldoc::GetOptsOO
	* Development release 3.14_06 -- Be lenient
	* 'perldoc intro' may find 'perlintro' page
	  (suggested by Gisle Aas)
	* -v (Verbosely describe) is now -D
	* perldoc -v PerlVar
        * Development release 3.14_05 -- Search perlvar
        * Applied patch to allow -A for searching perlvar.
          (after a patch by Ovid, 2008-02-26)
          [ #33624]
        * [RFC] the switch name is experimental: I am open
	  to convincing alternatives (other than -v and -V
	  which are already taken).   [obviously I changed my mind about that ;-)]
