Well, for example, try:

<package>
	<configure>
		<config dir="/tmp">invalid_command</config>
	</configure>
</package>

I'm getting "Segmentation fault".

Try anything that uses system_command() ("$self->" missing).

Try <link> with non-existing directory in "dir" attribute (typo).

And _don't_ try starting it with perl 5.005_03. 
You won't like the results at all. ;)

And about the merges ...
It's just that some error handling is missing from "system_command.xml", 
"textdump.xml" and "mkdir.xml", nothing that couldn't be fixed.

Don't get me wrong, I just wanted to to make sure you are aware of that. :)
