CPAN isn't the only thing:

[spot localhost perl-5.8.8]$ grep -r "require ExtUtils::MakeMaker" *
lib/CPAN.pm:        require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
lib/CPAN.pm:    require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
lib/ExtUtils/Embed.pm:#require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
lib/ExtUtils/Embed.pm:    require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
lib/ExtUtils/t/backwards.t:require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
lib/ExtUtils/MM.pm:require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
utils/perlbug.PL:        require ExtUtils::MakeMaker;

so, we'd need to handle ExtUtils::Embed and perlbug too. :/

perlbug is really the hardest one. I think we really want that to be in
the base perl package.

The "third option" above, is looking more and more like the cleanest fix
to me. Thoughts?
