Subject: Allow "use ok;"
Currently, "use ok" dies if given no arguments. While this makes it work like the use_ok() interface, it makes it difficult to work with because something you just want to innocently load a module. This particularly becomes a problem with "use ok 'ok'". has code to try and detect if it's being called inside use_ok(), but that code will no longer work next release. use_ok() got smarter and sets the line and file of the eval to the caller's location. No longer will caller() report /eval/ but an actual line and file. The "use ok" tests will fail next Test::More release. could maybe try to figure out if it's called inside use_ok() by looking up the stack, but that furthers an arms race that's unnecessary. "use ok;" is pretty obviously trying to load and not accidentally testing nothing. "use ok $module" is unlikely to happen, being the whole point is doing use_ok() at BEGIN time conveniently, and you can check for being passed undef if so. This patch ends that arms race and simply makes "use ok" work. I'd be happy to make a release of this module if you're done with it.

use ok 'ok'; currently works. use ok; dies saying it needs an additional argument. I *think* this is reasonable behavior. If not please re-open this ticket in the Test-Simple github issues.
