1. I notice that on CPAN Module::Runtime is fundamentally built from 
Module::Build.  Its Makefile.PL is "auto-generated by 
Module::Build::Compat version 0.4204."  But we no longer carry 
Module::Build in core.  That means we would need a "pure" Makefile.PL, 
i.e., one generated by ExtUtils::MakeMaker -- correct?

2. I wanted to examine this module's "Depended on by" status, but is having problems at the moment.

Thank you very much.
