* Package name follows standard
* Source tarball MD5 digest checked against CPAN
* URL and Source URL are valid
* License verified and included (file LICENSE)
* perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_xxx) present
* perl vendor libs present
* File permissions are valid
* Builds without problems in FC3 and FC4
* No opened tickets in·

Potential improvements:

* Drop the following BR:

»···BuildRequires: perl(Test::More) >= 0.47
»···BuildRequires: perl(File::Spec) >= 0.80
»···BuildRequires: perl(Scalar::Util) >= 1.10

  As of perl 5.8.1 these core modules have versions equal or superior to
  the ones listed above ($ corelist -a Teste::More File::Spec Scalar::Util)

* Maybe change the description to

»··· is intended to serve as a central and optional marshalling
»···point for state detection (are we running in compile-time or run-time
»···mode) and to act as a relatively light-weight module loader.
