I suppose it's worth it, from a user's perspective,
to include the almost-duplicated ::Table and ::Error
docs. Were you thinking of splitting it up into 11
separate files, one for each package?

As for the doc files including their own tests, would this
be something like what's done in the Test-Inline package,
which extracts tests from the pod section of a module? From
a quick reading this requires Test::More, which I seem to
remember (Geoff?) requires some massaging in Apache-Test to
