Well, it would be better to integrate the test in with something else,
ideally, but I saw the ITP and thought "hm, that might be useful to start
using with all my Perl projects." Checking a file for lack of tabs is
relatively easy, but locating all the Perl stuff in a source tree is a bit
trickier, and rolling those two things together so that one can write a
one- or two-line test is fairly useful.
It would be nice if that, Test::Pod, Test::Fixme, Test::Synopsis,
Test::MinimumVersion, and piles of other similar modules could be rolled
together into one distribution. But that's really an upstream problem.
