in thread Modern::Perl version 2011 required--this is only version 1.03 at my-perl-script.cgi

(After reading M/Perl.pm, I see the validity of year specifier (as version specifier).) chromatic, why have both the regular version string and also (plain) year as version?

    The integer year lets you see how recent or old the code is at a glance, but it's not a version number. You can install the most recent M::P and write use Modern::Perl '2010'; while still requiring the most recent version.
