Yeah, its in the alpha version.

But it talks almost exclusively about the various detailed things you can
do in Build.PL and not about basic things like where your modules and tests
go.  For that sort of information the best source at the moment is probably
to adapt from ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial.

I honestly don't bother with things like h2xs (especially h2xs) because
their templates tend to make things seem WAY more complicated than they
really are by providing "fill in the blanks" for all sorts of stuff you're
unlikely to need.  I think h2xs has contributed greatly to the "writing
modules is hard" myth.

Ahh email, my old friend.  Do you know that revenge is a dish that is best 
served cold?  And it is very cold on the Internet!
