This merge branch contains two commits, which should be considered
inseperable.  The first updates Pod::Checker, and the second changes
podcheck.t to use the new Pod::Checker.

This is the biggest remaining step in allowing Pod::Parser to be
removed from core.  podcheck.t still uses Pod::Parser to extract just
the pod from files.  That dependency can be removed when Pod::Simple
changes to allow equivalent functionality, something I myself am working

There are two cpan .t files (both in pod2usage) that use subcomponents
of Pod::Parser (Pod::Find and Pod::PlainText).  There appears to be
similar functionality in Pod::Simple, so that shouldn't be too hard to
fix, but I haven't looked further than finding that these aren't drop-in
replacements.  The pod2usage maintainer has been notified.
