corelist-perldelta.pl is a bit schizophrenic. The part to generate the new Perldelta text does not need Algorithm::Diff, but wants to be run with the freshly built Perl.
Ideally, the program will be split into two separate programs, one to generate the text and one to show the diff between the corelist sections of the last perldelta and the next perldelta.
Currently no information about Removed Modules is displayed in any of the modes.
