    Having warnings enabled by default can sometimes be problematic, for example Apache error logs do have cases where warning spam blows them up (so I don't generally enable warnings in production unless we're seeing problems).

    But having "use 5.012" implicitly mean "use strict;" can only be positive as far as I can see.

    It upgrades one good practice (using strict) to an even better practice (always declaring minimum Perl version compatibility).
