 Why depend on p5-PPI>=1.203?
 In Makefile.PL:
 requires      ( 'PPI'                      => '0.845' );
Because of this statement from the POD of the package:

> Because the C implementations are linked to the perl versions of the same function, it is preferable to upgrade PPI::XS any time you do a major upgrade of PPI itself.

I didn't try with any other version than 1.203 - so I can't be sure that the hint in the Makefile.PL is correct or simply outdated and/or forgotten to be increased.

If you're sure that the specified version is correct, feel free to modify the requirement before committing.
