Stubs for deleted pods?
Message ID:
After my blog post about the new OO docs in core, a commenter asked if 
there were stubs for the old docs.

I think adding this makes sense. Many people may be used to just typing 
"perldoc perltoot", and having this say "no documentation found" could be 
confusing. This will also help sites like maintain links.

I've made a branch that adds these stubs as drolsky/stub-deleted-pods.

I had to do some small tweaks to buildtoc to add a list of files it should 
not expect to see mentioned in perlpod, but otherwise the change was 
mostly mechanical.

I'd appreciate some review before I merge this.
