in reply to What is the point of this coding style?

I can just speculate that people have a deeply ingrained habit of keeping scopes small, either for things like no warnings 'once';, or for variable declarations.

Of course that would only apply if the code was

{ our $VERSION = '0.35'; }

but old habits die hard.
