dist-zilla: compile tests can skip some modules

the compilation test plugin for dist-zilla now accepts a parameter to skip some modules. this can be handy to prevent testing some known-to-fail modules - yes, this can happen if your module does stuff assuming a given environment not currently in place (eg: test modules...).

just use the following in your dist.ini file:
skip = Test$

the skip parameter is interpreted as a regex, matched against the module name (not the file name of the module). in this example, all modules with a name ending with Test will not be tested for compilation.
