Why do you have test reports bigger than 100k?
More often than not because a CPAN authors does not specify a prereq
that they need and when it comes to run the test suite, perl helpfully
spews out that Such and Such module can't be found in @INC
As most smokers are using PERL5LIB, these @INC dumps can be huge.
Many tests equals many huge warnings equals huge test reports.
I thought that both CPAN::Reporter and CPANPLUS::Whatever now truncated
ridiculously long messages (or rather, snip stuff out of the middle, as
the useful bits are at the top and tail).

The test of the goodness of a thing is its fitness for use. If it
fails on this first test, no amount of ornamentation or finish will
make it any better, it will only make it more expensive and foolish.
