Folks who want to work on this can get the latest version of pod2man as
part of the podlators package on either CPAN or ftp.eyrie.org in
/pub/software/modules.  I'll be happy to work with anyone to improve the
output quality if anything else turns up; Zack's help in reporting things
it was doing that weren't ideal has improved the output quality quite a
bit.

(I'm the pod2man maintainer.)

Should be in the current Perl 5.7.0; I'm not sure how unstable unstable
wants to be.  It should be in 5.6.1 as well, but we've been waiting for
that release for a while.
