Now for an entirely different question that is somewhat related, to a person
who can possibly answer it *best*...

why does the Makefile.PL for Class::Prototyped end up with a manpage
named "Class::Class::Prototyped"?  What logic is it using?

Of course, an answer is to move the Class dir under lib/, but how does
it get the *wrong* answer?  What's it thinking?
