By "Install::Zilla" I mean a Module::Build-like tool, but one that has
no support for the authoring role.  It wouldn't bundle itself into
dists; it would just use configure_requires along with a Build.PL that
said "use Install::Zilla" instead of "use Module::Build".  It wouldn't
be tightly coupled to Dist::Zilla.
See http://blogs.perl.org/users/leon_timmermans/2011/03/le-roi-est-mort-vive-le-roi.html
for my ideas on that. Actually writing that module builder is not my
first or most important goal (though it will be the one most visible
to end-users). My primary goal is to make writing a module builder
easy (or at least a lot easier than it is now). Currently there is a
fairly large amount of accidental complexity in writing a Build.PL
implementation. Those problems should have modules solving them,
preferably refactored from well-tested Module::Build code.
