I checked the PerlModuleTest and the behaviour that is expected[1].
PerlModuleTest does not anything special beside returning the step status
according to the test results.

The options now are:
* to make sure that buildmaster is reconfigured (even better restarted)
* check parameters
* check logs and step status

As for the renaming step, this sounds like a good idea except that
PerlModuleTest has a default command to execute and it's not really clear what
would be the command in general TAP case.  I personally like the idea of the
rename and am inclined to add a couple of lines into the documentation saying
that by default the perl 'prove' command will be executed.

I'd appreciate if the table[1] is reviewed and if it looks feasible, I'll
submit a PR to the current docs.
