More thoughts on Dist::Zilla

Having just read Zbigniew's blog entry on Dist::Zilla managed distributions.

This is a real issue - admittedly I have been trying out a number of plugin bundles recently, but having to test a new config by doing dzil build and scroll back to the top error message to find the missing plugin, install that, redo is just not a fun development method.

Maybe as a first cut we could do with a dzil tool to spit out a required plugin/plugin bundles set which we can then pass to cpanm or similar.

For me this is just an irritation. I suspect for someone who has just cloned their first project from github because they want to try changing something, this could be a real pain...
