I just applied it to a local build of maint from yesterday and reran
everything under lib/ExtUtils/t and got all tests successful.  I think
what we've now done is roll back a patch that I had put in blead but
that Schwern rejected upstream, so in other words where we are now is
a conservative state appropriate for maint.  Let the record show that
I've used "conservative" and "Schwern" in the same sentence!
