Subject: [gentoo-perl] Proposed perl-module.eclass additions

I'd like to propose adding two new vars to the perl-module.eclass. (all
naming conventions completely open to change)

echovar - if defined, used in src_prep for passing an answer to perl
Makefile.Pl|perl Build.PL. Could save some overhead with ebuilds that
need that extra input, letting us stick to the basic skeleton ebuild for
even *more* perl-modules :)

patchlist - array of patches to be applied in src_unpack. Just a
thought, mostly along the same lines as above, cleaning up the skeletons
and putting more work in the eclass.

Mind you, even if agreed and adopted, there's no harm with what's in the
tree already, so this could be slowly integrated in (not updating a 100+
ebuilds or something crazy like that).
