Module::Build::Version contains a copy/paste of the guts of
version::vpp, with some trickery to avoid conflicting with
if it's available and of a high-enough version.  So, it's just an
update, which is no more likely to break things than the
release itself is.

Yes.  0.2603 only fixes INSTALLDIRS for older Perls, so it's only
relevant for people installing from CPAN.
