Generally, if you're creating both C<META.json> and C<META.yml>, then you're doing so purely for compatibility reasons.

In such circumstances, using the same meta-data for both leads to a lot of cruft in C<META.yml>

This L<C<Dist::Zilla>|Dist::Zilla> extension is for such circumstances.

However, if you are I<only> shipping C<META.yml> and B<NOT> C<META.json>, then using this extension
would be harmful and cause loss of information.

Presently, this extension is a I<PROTOTYPE>, and just culls fields leading with C<x_> passed by C<Dist::Zilla>.

The final behavior may require enhancements to C<CPAN::Meta::Converter> and might be possibly superseded
by patches to C<MetaYAML> itself.
