FAQ
A few days ago I did a compare of a blead install compared with a 5.10.1
install, and found some files had changed their architecture-ness, and one
probable stowaway had appeared (filter-util.pl). Others of you may have a
better idea than me if any of these are actually errors:

    Gah. I had hoped that the grand move from lib/ would be completely
    transparent, and near-trivial to cherry pick. IIRC no modules were actually
    upgraded in blead during the move. (At least, not before the move into ext/)

    That will be because they're dual life, so I broke them out from the B
    directory, at which point they aren't XS extensions any more, so they're
    installed in the "right" place.

    I assume that whatever solution we have in place to get IO::Compress and
    Errno into architecture specific directories could be used on these.

    That will be because pathtools as been rebuilt as 1 distribution, so they're
    now seen as part of it, and installed into architecture specific directories.
    This seems "right", and better than what we had, as before any upgrade of
    pathtools from CPAN would install File::Spec into architecture specific
    directories, rather that the architecture neutral that the core used to install
    them into.

    Also, I don't think that this one is a problem, as architecture specific is
    ahead of architecture neutral in @INC

    That will be because I split out XSLoader from the DynaLoader directory, and
    as it has no XS code, it's seen as nonxs, and installed "appropriately"

    No, I don't know.
