Well ... this raises a question. Whither Module::Build?

Is its future simply to be the precursor to Dist::Zilla? Or to be wrapped
up as a Dist::Zilla::Simple?
AFAIK Dist::Zilla is NOT a substitute to Module::Build (or
ExtUtils::MakeMaker).
That's correct. Dist::Zilla is a distribution packaging tool only.
It *can* create a Makefile.PL or Build.PL for you (and most
Dist::Zilla authors seem to do that) but your distribution still
relies on EU::MM or M::B for the configure/make/test/install cycle for
end-users.

I wrote a little about which tools I think people should use here:
http://www.dagolden.com/index.php/1173/what-tools-should-you-use-to-create-a-cpan-distribution/

I think M::B still has a role for customized distribution needs.
