  Description     : tool for creating Meta objects to track custom metrics

Meta programming is becoming more and more popular. The popularity of Meta
programming comes from the fact that many problems are made significantly
easier. There are a few specialized Meta tools out there, for instance
Class:MOP which is used by Moose to track class metadata.

Meta::Builder is designed to be a generic tool for writing Meta objects.
