Latest CPAN Module Test::Builder caused test failure

The latest version of the CPAN Module Test::Builder caused a failure in the test t/perl/Parrot_Test.t

A fix for this was incorporated at r48449.

In essence Test::Builder no longer outputs TODO tests to STDERR but to STDOUT.

from the changelog:

    * Test::Builder::Tester now sets $tb->todo_output to the output handle and
      not the error handle (to be in accordance with the default behaviour of
      Test::Builder and allow for testing TODO test behaviour).

consequently there has been a change of behavior in Test::Builder after version 0.94

Test::Builder is part of Test::Simple (latest version 0.96 released 11 Aug 2010)

It would probably a good idea to check if this has any effect on other TODO tests.

I upgraded to Test::Simple v0.96 and ran make fulltest. While I wasn't looking for any specific impact on TODO tests, I got no surprises.

AFAICT, this ticket is closable.

Thank you very much.
