getting started guide in pod

Well I hope there are some interested parties out there for this.  The 
new and improved "getting started" guide should be ready in pod by 
Thursday.  I have added more content and tried to incorporate the 
suggestions that everyone gave to me.  The document is growing as I 
learn more.  I have translated the document several times, but when I 
want to add more content I go back to the original format because I find 
writing in pod so distasteful.

Is there a module or a script out there that will let me write in 
"freestyle pod" (allowing indentation and reasonable blank line 
placement) and translate it to pod?

Just wondering: What would another documentation style have to provide 
to make it an acceptable replacement for pod?

On a side note.  If you replace the current libparrot_def.in file with 
this (see listing below).  The dll (win32) built with 'make shared' will 
make the t/src tests pass (make sure libparrot.dll is in the path).  The 
majority of the tests pass.  Some say that they fail, but on closer 
inspection, the output and the expected output are the same.  I have 
verified this several times by compiling the test code myself.  I am 
left with the conclusion that the perl testing modules might be 
malfunctioning somehow.  I am currently looking at them.

Thanks,
Erik
