-Ddefault_inc_excludes_dot is now the default, if you don't like it
the only option is to op _out_  with -Udefault_inc_excludes_dot

The only reason there might be the perception to the contrary is due to
the side feature, PERL_USE_UNSAFE_INC, which, when set to 1, restores
'.' in @INC when perl otherwise lacks it.

And _that_ ENV var is used in a few places in CPAN clients and TAP::Harness,
which creates confusing perceptions for maintainers, but makes things
less broken
for end users.
