  Comment: test_requires_from and dev-support test modules (Score 1) on 2009.03.27 5:26

Any thoughts on how you would support "optional", development support testing modules?

For example, in the documentation for Test::Pod::Coverage, it recommends putting the module requirements behind an eval and skip_all statement, so that you, as the developer, can ensure that your POD is covered, but the end user doesn't need to have the testing modules installed.

While I, as a developer may care that the documentation is complete, I, as an end user, do not.

There might be a better example than what I provided, but I think the idea is at least laid out.
