  • It already does "use feature '5.011';". And it was hard to add even "use strict" - too much opposition. "use warnings" would have even more.

  • Strongly disagree with IO::Handle and warnings. Strictures are important, warnings are not (note that I almost always enable them).

    Would like no indirect, but I doubt it’ll happen.

    Not opposed to C3, but indifferent.

    • What's wrong with IO::Handle? 5.6 could have supported calling methods on lexical filehandles without loading IO::Handle explicitly without violating the Principle of Least Surprise. (I could argue that having an object you can't actually call methods on violates PoLS.)

  • I've been doing this for years in code without any problems, so I think it's a good candidate if strictures are going to be enabled.
