Pending ExtUtils::ParseXS changes
Message ID:
Hi all,

this is just a heads-up that I have a number of ExtUtils::ParseXS (and 
friends) changes in the smueller/eupxs_ng branch. It's a mix of bug 
fixes, features, and improvements in clarity and code quality (from 
horrific to still-horrific-but-less-so).

Among other things, this means that you can use EU::PXS multiple times 
in the same process since it can operate in a mode that doesn't use (and 
in particular reuse) global state.

However, history tells me that this *will* break some of the crazier 
uses of typemaps, etc., so I will only merge this to blead after 
receiving both a smoke-me do-over and a CPAN smoke. My CPAN smokes are 
blocking on getting the CPAN smoke machine back from maintenance.

Comments and testing most welcome.

Best regards,
