PDL source currently implements its documentation support via
PDL::Pod::Parser and PDL::Pod::Select modules. These appear
to be patched, early versions of the Pod::Parser and Pod::Select
modules.

As these two modules are now part of the perl5 Core modules
(since version 5.6.x), porting the PDL documentation support
to the mainline modules would reduce the confusing duplication
of functionality for PDL.

    This is a clean up whose time has come. PDL is complex enough without the added confusion of non-standard modules corresponding to existing Core ones.

    Thanks to work by Joel Berger and David Mertens, this has been pushed to sf.net git and is available for use/evaluation in CPAN developers release PDL-2.4.11_004 and higher.
