Yes, please. If I had only one wish to make about M:I, it would be that it doesn't strip all the POD when embedding itself in inc/. Stripping usage instructions and such is perfectly fine. What we miss in the inc/arnated M:I is the original statements of authorship/copyright and license. This change alone would be of great help by reducing guesswork. If I had a second wish, it would be that M:I does not embed at all in inc, allowing CPAN distributions to use the system-wide copy. With the appearance of stable API, I see there is work already that may lead to that direction. Thanks! And more thanks for carying about downstream packagers!
