More 5.8.1 Migration issues

[ #15355 ]

Further research into the migration to 5.8.1 reveals plenty of fascinating issues. Issues such as "overriding private methods is a bad idea" (what do you when the internals change?). Issues such as "extensive use of experimental features in production code is a bad idea" (pseudo-hashes). And my favorite:
