CVS commit: wip/p5-Test-use-ok

Import into wip/p5-Test-use-ok

Log Message:
According to the Test::More documentation, it is recommended to run
use_ok() inside a BEGIN block, so functions are exported at
compile-time and prototypes are properly honored.

That is, instead of writing this:

    use_ok( 'Some::Module' );
        use_ok( 'Other::Module' );

        One should write this:

            BEGIN { use_ok( 'Some::Module' ); }
                BEGIN { use_ok( 'Other::Module' ); }

                However, people often either forget to add BEGIN, or mistakenly 
                use_ok with other tests in a single BEGIN block, which can 
create subtle
                differences in execution order.

                With this module, simply change all use_ok in test scripts to 
use ok,
                and they will be executed at BEGIN time.  The explicit space 
after use
                makes it clear that this is a single compile-time action.
