Test::Unit is pretty much dead in the water with no sign of being revived.

Test::Class is the preferred XUnity module.  It combines the best bits of
XUnit (inheritable test methods, setup, teardown) with perlish testing 
idioms (ie. Test::More and friends).  And its actively developed.

There's also the somewhat neglected Test::Inline.

There's also something called Test::SimpleUnit.  I may be missing something
but it doesn't look very simple.
