This module is the guts of CPANPLUS -- it inherits from all other modules in the CPANPLUS::Internals::* namespace, thus defying normal rules of OO programming -- but if you're reading this, you already know what's going on ;)
Please read the
CPANPLUS::Backend documentation for the normal API.
_init creates a new CPANPLUS::Internals object.
You have to pass it a valid
Returns the object on success, or dies on failure.
Flushes the designated caches from the
Returns true on success, false if one or more caches could not be be flushed.
Registers a callback for later use by the internal libraries.

Is called when the user should be prompted to edit test reports about to be sent out by Test::Reporter. Should return a boolean indicating true to edit the test report in an editor and false to skip it.
Is called when 'make test' or 'Build test' fails. Should return a boolean indicating whether the install should continue even if the test failed.
Is called when the
CPANPLUS::Dist::* metafile is created, like
CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb, giving the user a chance to programatically alter it. Should return the (munged) text to be written to the metafile.
Adds a list of directories to the include path. This means they get added to
@INC as well as
Returns true on success, false on failure.
