After Schwern noticed that search.cpan.org is now using the "repository" key
from META.yml if/when present, I noticed that while both M::B and EU::MM
support the arbitrary data-insertion, it isn't carried over when M::B
generates a Makefile.PL as part of the "Build dist" action.
I don't think it's really necessary. The distribution will be packed
with a META.yml generated with Module::Build and end-users will not be
recreating it during a normal perl Makefile.PL, make, make test
install cycle.

Further, making it carry over would mandate an updated version of
EU::MM to avoid Makefile.PL errors, so it might actually make things
worse for end-users.
