(In the meantime 3 more were accepted from NEW; maybe you could just
run the command yourself before throwing the list into ci.d.n?)

First idea (maybe someone from the Perl group has different ideas):
The existance of a {Makefile,Build}.PL file in the top directory of
the source package should be a good heuristics.
Maybe we also want to check for a t/ directory there (otherwise the
'smoke' test will probably blow up?).

Makes sense.
