Best practice for Perl 5 is TMTOWTDI, which is fairly frustrating.

I see:

Module::Install is really clever but no-one seems to be using it.  So I
chose Build.PL.

Module::Build can be induced to auto-create a Makefile.PL (although I've
managed to break that ;-), which Debian perl-policy seems to require.

So IMNAAHO*, Build.PL is the way to go.

Doing is a good way to make a statement and git gives you all the
flexibility you should need.
