Suit yourself.  My only other comment would be that the man*ext settings
for a Build.PL script is not required.  The man extensions will be
provided by perl's Config.pm during build.  I was sure I had posted a
Build.PL example on the wiki but I can't find it now.  A Makefile.PL one
is in the perl policy page.
