  • It requires perl 5.8 though (for ExtUtils::Constant).

    Why so? If ExtUtils::Constant isn't buggy, then I thought that it worked safely as far back as 5.005. You ship a pair of source files to fall back on if the user doesn't have it installed (which means that they can't tweak the list of defined cosntants) but anyone who does have it installed can tweak to their hearts content. Well, that was the plan. See Time-HiRes [cpan.org] for an example of the fallback mechanism.

    • Just laziness. I do this stuff for work rather than for the benefit of the community now. Looks like a simple work around though.

      I should also send you some doc patches for ExtUtils::Constant - the docs suck :-)
