Thanks for that Julian. 

But I remain confused on some very fundamental points.

For instance, if I hand build my rules file, how do "execute it"?
./rules doesn't work. And 'make a-rules-target' doesn't work because
make wants a file named Makefile.

Suppose I want to run with DH_VERBOSE=1. But right now, my debian/
directory and Makefile (not yet on Module::Build yet) are created AND
THEN EXECUTED before I can step in and say, whoa there cowboy, I want
some debug in my output.

It looks to me like the best way for me to do this is to just build
my debian/ directory from scratch. But then what do I DO with the
damn thing after I've built it?
