There was still the issue I noted in:

On reflection the best way to deal with this is probably to just
remove what I wrote about @INC and keep Dominic's text. I just pushed
a commit do to that:

If anyone disagrees just partially revert that & find some way to
integrate it into the "Removal of the current directory (C<.>) from
C<@INC>" section.

The delta is still dirty under podchecker due to Karl's d8362e1b8aa:

    *** WARNING: node 'Unescaped left brace in regex is illegal here
in regex; marked by S<E<lt>-- HERE> in m/%s/' contains non-escaped |
or / at line 1526 in file pod/perldelta.pod

I don't know enough about POD syntax to see how to fix that. Once
that's fixed the delta looks to be in good shape to me.
