We have a sort of race condition in that we need M::CL shipped to CPAN
without the newly bumped version.

If there's a clean commit point before the bump, (possibly just the
release tag) I suppose BinGOs can jump back to that commit and release
from it.

I'm also not sure the version bump automation is going to easily play
nice with M::CL's needs.

But I like the idea of a Porting test to ensure M::CL gets updated
when the version is bumped, whether automated or not.
