+    <!-- This is info for the Test::Builder::Tester module which may very well
+         be obsolete now. The packages that need it apparently also now need
+         Test::More-0.62 which is a core Perl module in an updated version. To
+         install the Test::More-0.62 version you must install the
+         Test::Simple-0.62 module which will overwrite the Perl core stuff.
+         The Test::Simple-0.62 module now includes the Test::Builder::Tester
+         module. Perl versions starting with Perl-5.9.x will have this module
+         include in the core at which time Test::Builder::Tester can be forever
+         removed from this page as it will then also be a core module.
