It would be useful to include some of the module's description in a
longer description, eg to explain why you would want to convert
Makefile.PL to Build.PL.


    "ExtUtils::MakeMaker" has been a de-facto standard for the common
    distribution of Perl modules; "Module::Build" is expected to supersede
    "ExtUtils::MakeMaker" in some time (part of the Perl core as of 5.10?)

    The transition takes place slowly, as the converting process manually
    achieved is yet an uncommon practice. The Module::Build::Convert
    Makefile.PL parser is intended to ease the transition process.
