Subject: README.pod gets installed to @INC

Due to an unfortunate side effect of history:
   

    README.pod

in  /

Gets installed as:

   $INC[0]/Perl/README.pod
 

The easiest solution here is "Not have README.pod in the source tree".

 

The second option is to have an INSTALL.SKIP full of regex, similar to this:  https://metacpan.org/source/KENTNL/Dist-Zilla-PluginBundle-Author-KENTNL-2.025010/INSTALL.SKIP

 

This doesn't prevent Installers copying the /README.pod  to /blib/lib/Perl/README.pod

 

but it *does* prevent ExtUtils::Install from copying that file to its final target in the OS
