[Since ExtUtils-Manifest is now primarily maintained by Perl 5 Porters, I am moving this ticket here from Since the patch submitted to that ticket will not apply cleanly, I am not adding it to this ticket.  If we (p5p) decide that the original requestor's point is valid, we can easily prepare a patch. -- jkeenan]

It seems to me that ExtUtils::Manifest does a lot of C<warn>ing when  
it ougt to be just printing to STDERR. What's the difference? The  
latter avoids being overridden by $SIG{__WARN__} (which, in our  
little project, prints out a stack trace).

Patch attached.
