It's not tested at run time, we just test that it's loaded. Feel free to 
submit a patch/post an idea how to add a test for A-SL w/o disrupting the 
rest of the test suite.

My proposal was to somehow report to users the optional modules during 
'perl Makefile.PL' (.e.g Module::Build (or is it Module::Install) seems to 
provide this functionality. When running CPANPLUS it suggests to install 
optional modules. I don't know how to do it with MakeMaker.
