The residual changes would be a removal of Crypt-SSLeay and IPC-Cmd,
while IPC-Run, Test-NoWarnings and Test-Tester would still be supplied
by the build dependencies.  Unless someone has a strong opinion that
these two should be dropped, I'd continue to have them available.

Going forward I think this should provide a smooth transition:

1) ITA perl_vendor and provide an umbrella plus all dependencies for
perl-5.14.2.  I'd use current versions for these, not the original ones
from perl_vendor.

2) The re-builds and additional distributions for perl-5.18 will be
provided as test versions.

3) Coinciding with the perl-5.18.2 release, move everything from test to

4) Optional: obsolete the perl_vendor umbrella package.
