Understood - see my other email on how to install a developer-specific 
version of a module.

interesting thought.... this just might work.  I could build a package 
called say "Bundle::HTML::Template::Extended", which depended on H::T, 
plus say H::T::Extended, then Build.pm would effectively 'patch' the 
production H::T with the overridden Perl modules.
