Actually, that's not what I meant. Module-Starter can generate 
ExtUtils::MakeMaker-based distros with a Makefile.PL. However, the code that 
it puts inside the module is more modern and may only work on a modern perl. 
With h2xs, on the other hand, one can specify the version of perl that the 
skeleton will be able to run on.

Chuck Norris wrote a complete Perl 6 implementation in a day but then
destroyed all evidence with his bare hands, so no one will know his secrets.
