Subject: Test::YAML question/security concern

During a normal "make install", Test::YAML is installed on the system. Test::YAML includes this line: use lib 'lib'; It seems like that would be a security issue. Is Test::YAML intended to be a general-purpose tool for YAML hackers, or is it really just for testing This was brought up regarding the Fedora Extras YAML package ( For now I've just removed Test::YAML from the package, but if it is likely to be useful to others, I'll add it back in later.
