It's reasonable, but it would require a chunk of build magic to get it to
all install properly.  It's something that I've been meaning to look at,
but I don't expect it to be particularly simple (I don't really want to
dump INN-specific modules into the regular module tree, for example, so
we'd need to make sure that MakeMaker got the right magic to put
everything in a place that INN could then add to @LIB).

Yeah, and I'd also like the Perl interface to the storage API so that we
wouldn't have to call sm all over the place.
