Upcoming changes are going to break it (in a fairly easy to paper over
way). I am not involved in Perl at all anymore. If someone wanted to
take it on, I'd be quite happy to hand it over.

Details are in

    I understand that Test::Builder::Tester is the way to go these days -
    and it's distributed with Test::Builder, so incompatibilities should
    never* happen.

    * yeah right

    Test::Tester is really nice and easy to use.

    Test::Builder::Tester is awful and often requires that you predict the exact
    TAP that will be printed.

    I always recommend Test::Tester.

    Fergal, if no one replies, I can take over simply to shepherd patches and make
    releases.

    Indeed. I just did a search of all my Test::* modules, and they all use
    Test::Tester, not Test::Builder::Tester.

    me too. I may even do more, but I'm not making any promises yet :)

    Thanks Ricardo and Karen.

    Chad (who is making the changes in Test::Builder) has offered to take
    it over and possibly bundle it with TB which would be nice and make it
    easier for people to choose it.

    I'll give him the keys to the house shortly,

    I concur. Test::Tester's style of looking at the results as data,
    rather than as formatted stuff, is the way to go for most test testing.
