Thanks, you guys have been very nice to my flailing and failing.  I'm going to
back off and send out a sort of overview email so we can figure out how best
to chunk this up.

Yes, I concur 100%.  So much that I went back in my time machine and added
done_testing() to Test::More!  Also I killed Hitler, so now WWII ends in 1945.
 Things seem to have turned out for the better.

I love it when people advocate my features back to me. :)  I didn't use
done_testing because I didn't know your stance on using non-5.8 core versions
of modules.

It is very easy to bundle an uninstalled copy of Test::More, probably easier
than putting in the code necessary to check for it and skip it.  A lot of Perl
modules do it.  The usual thing is to put it into t/lib/ and add "use lib
't/lib'" to the tests.  I don't see any reason why that basic technique
wouldn't work here, with some minor changes to match the Git test suite.

I can help you with that, but I'd like to get through this SVN 1.7 fix first.

Being faith-based doesn't trump reality.
