The approximate split is that ext/ and lib/ are the things that are just
shipped by core, and dist/ and cpan/ are dual-life "shared with CPAN"
so avoid the latter.

There are a few small exceptions, so not quite everything in lib/ is
fair game. My suggestion would be to consult the list in the file

for files claimed by the _PERLLIB entry.
