Make sure your POD documentation makes sense when translated with
pod2man. I went several times, i.e., over all of PDF::API2's manpages
because they used "=head1 PDF::API2::Some::Thing" instead of "=head1 NAME".
Those bugs take a _lot_ of time to properly patch!
POD is not just to be used by perldoc.
