Subject: Too many test modules required
Download (untitled) / with headers

I appreciate that you've taken the time to test this module so rigorously, but it makes it difficult for the users of my stuff to be forced to install Test::Pod::Coverage, Test::Kwalitee, Test::CheckManifest, and a bajillion dependencies just to get this one very nice module into place. Might it be possible to trim that dependencies list a bit? Thanks for your very nice module, and in advance for your consideration of my humble request.

Seconding the previous comment. I'll be a little less gentle: it's simply wrong to prereq all those Test:: modules when all your author tests do "eval 'Test::Whatever' or plan skip_all". Please remove them from your Makefile.PL.
