Executive Summary: If you're using Test::Builder::Tester to test your Test
module, switch to Test::Tester. It will make the transition to Test::Builder

That would be quite a list of modules:
Sorry, I wasn't clear. In the short term, TBT will continue to work.

In the short term, TBT uses a special TAP formatter which emulates the quirks
of the existing behavior. So whatever tests you have with whatever
assumptions about the TAP format will still work.

In the long term, TBT will become further and further divorced from reality.
It will be frozen in its format and behaviors and not reflecting actual outputs.

Finally, rather than trying to interpret what happened based on the TAP, its
easier to look at the test events directly with Test::Tester or TB2::Tester.

On error resume stupid
