I second the other replies you have got. In my experience, most CPAN
modules test correctly. And anyway, if they don't, and if you as the
maintainer (and probably working together with the author) are not
able to get them working (and the module works correctly), it's up to
_you_ to comment it out - But the default should be to run the tests.
