perlnewmod: module-starter and ExtUtils::MakeMaker?
Message ID:
If you look at perlnewmod (and perlmodstyle) you get pointed to
module-starter, with an example run line that doesn't use the
"--builder" option.  If you follow that example, it generates a
build tree based on ExtUtils::MakeMaker.  So that must be the
current Best Practices, right?

Alternately, I could assume that Miyagawa knows what he's doing,
and use Dist::Milla, and I see that defaults to
Module::Build::Tiny.  If that's the actual Best Practices, then
perhaps perlnewmod needs revision?

Just to be clear, I understand that lots of things would work,
including h2xs and ExtUtils::MakeMaker, I just think there
should be a single, clear story you can tell to new CPAN
