I wonder if it is time to deprecate Module::Info, or at least point to Module::Metadata as the in-core and preferred mechanism for gathering module information? It looks like Module::Info's mechanism for parsing $VERSIONs out of files is quite incomplete and outdated.

Definitely need to add a SEE ALSO section. I'll do a review of the information M::I provides, and for all of them what other module might be a better source. Hopefully that will make it clear whether it's safe to deprecate it or not. Neil
