In general I'm about avoiding magic incantations. Adding an
automagical --dev flag might be too much.
What we can definitely do is include a reasonable answers.txt file and
have the instructions for running checksetup include that.

perl checksetup.pl --cpanm contrib/devmode.txt

a command to run the plackup with dev settings is good though, and
I've filed a bug about that. The name will be something that implies
"this is for development, you probably want something else in

Meanwhile, making more defaults work -- when should we have a
discussion about moving the perl modules under 'lib' as is common
practice? :)
If we did that "plackup -r" would find all the module changes for us. :)
