which doesn't work at all for third party XS modules, which is why we have 
those extra statements in, and why we need to do that foo in order to have XS modules seen at all.

remembering to run 'make' between test runs is everyday life for most of us 
:)  I even have an alias for it

alias test='make && perl -Mblib'

$ test t/01foo.t

personally, I'd rather see everything run out of blib - it just seems to 
make the most sense overall, and it's closer to what users of the other perl 
testing suites are used to.
