Bug#356384: ITP: libtest-use-ok-perl -- Alternative to Test::More::use_ok

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Krzysztof Krzyzaniak (eloy)" <eloy@debian.org>

* Package name    : libtest-use-ok-perl
  Version         : 0.01
  Upstream Author : Autrijus Tang <autrijus@autrijus.org>
* URL             : http://mirrors.kernel.org/cpan/modules/by-module/Test/Test-use-ok-0.01.tar.gz
* License         : Perl: GPL/Artistic
  Description     : Alternative to Test::More::use_ok

 According to the Test::More documentation, it is recommended to run use_ok()
 inside a BEGIN block, so functions are exported at compile-time and
 prototypes are properly honored.
 However, people often either forget to add BEGIN, or mistakenly group use_ok
 with other tests in a single BEGIN block, which can create subtle differences
 in execution order.
 With this module, simply change all use_ok in test scripts to use ok, and
 they will be executed at BEGIN time. The explicit space after use makes it
 clear that this is a single compile-time action.

NOTE: this module is needed to upload new upstream version of libcatalyst-perl
