Re: [RFC PATCH 1/2] add a local copy of Mail::Address from CPAN

Yeah, yours is much simpler because Mail::Address doesn't have an import
method, which is the entire complexity in the Error.pm wrapper.

I'll probably submit a wrapper-for-the-wrappers patch at some point
after this gets in, i.e. both of these would become:

    package Git::Error;
    use Git::WrapCPAN 'Error';

    package Git::Mail::Address;
    use Git::WrapCPAN 'Mail::Address';

Then the Git::WrapCPAN package would do all the magic the Git::Error
wrapper is doing now, but with a configurable package.

But this doesn't have to wait for that.

Some notes on your patch:

 * If I comment out your whole eval/or-do I was puzzled because tests
   still pass, turns out the eval { require Email::Valid } will bring in
   Mail::Address from CPAN.

   Not a bug, just something to note for others poking at this.

 * You didn't update t/t9000/test.pl to use the wrapper, which I thought
   was a bug until I realized this is built on top of
