I'm so glad that the new MakeMaker is out! MakeMaker was one of the great big toxic heaps in the Perl dist, even scarier than Pod::* and perldoc. Schwern is a superstar for fixing it up.
Now if only I can dig myself out from months of backed up for work long enough to finish up my new Pod parser and maybe spiff up perldoc a bit. Ahwell, I'll be "finally done" with my book in just a few more days.
