Personal habit and module-starter stuff that's been around for a while.  It's not "broken" (for some definition of broken), so I fixed other things with my time/energy.

Thanks.  I'll look into it.  Is this "trivial", for the Ingy definition of trivial, or for the mere-mortal definition?

This is great to know about.  Thanks.  I'm not seeing how to use this during testing.  At least the modules in ../blib can be accessed during testing by mucking with -I flags (or PERL5_LIB).  I don't see how the share can be intercepted in develoment and test prior to 'Build install'.  What am I missing?
