Will it be completely backwards compatible with Build.PL? I originally created them separately because there was stuff I had that wouldn't autogenerate. I used this key/value in the Module::Build constructor:
create_makefile_pl => 'traditional',The problem with doing this is that we don't get the "Do you wish to install the 'runtests' utility?" prompt, and, as a result, the user never gets runtests installed. Do you know of a way of handling this?
