|Subject:||need an easy way to disable share_dir|
The distro Xacobeo has a share directory, but uses it in a different way than intended by the share_dir feature. We also have darkpan distros that are structured the same way. Once M::B has detected a share/ subdir, it can't be easily persuaded to not copy the files to auto/. Things that work: setting share_dir to a nonsense value/not existing directory; subclassing M::B and nuking the functionality. Inhibiting should be easier. My colleague has a stronger opinion: that by default M::B should not magically act on a share/ alone, but require an explicit trigger, e.g. setting the share_dir option manually in Build.PL.
