I'm not sure I understand why removing things from PREREQ_PM would be a 
problem for you then; the %packages hash would remain unchanged (ie. 
have everything) so you have something to refer to when manually editing 
the Bundle.

http://www.cpan.org/misc/cpan-faq.html#How_make_bundle
might be helpful? I didn't really pay too much attention to the advice - 
does it offer a typo-avoiding solution?
