yeah, well... it's not _my_ fault that the test checks for Test::More and
mod_perl but the embedded isn't the same :)

I wouldn't want to do that - people other than mod_perl folks are using this
and I wouldn't want to effectively say "the tests can't be run unless you're
using mod_perl, loser."

or not worry about it at all - t/more isn't in the MANIFEST, so it will only
be a "problem" for people like us.  I mean, we can spend tuits mucking
around with it, but I don't think it's all that important, since
-withtestmore is marked as "useful but experimental" anyway.
