I agree that it's a terrible pity we've got low cpantesters scores 
because of a broken pod checker. OTOH, good, working documentation is a 
virtue. So I'm +0 on the idea of patching the doc tests.

I'm -1 on releasing a new CPAN dist just for this fix. Once we graduate 
(which is hopefully days away), getting a new release out should be much 
easier (one less VOTE to take) and we could just do a real 0.3.1 release 
to catch the doc fix and any others we've accrued. The benefit of 
keeping CPAN releases in sync with official Apache releases outweighs 
the benefit of a nicer cpantesters report. IMO.
