in thread use bytes without breaking perl 5.005 or 5.004?

Hey, interesting! So, the idea would be to do it like this?
BEGIN { $INC{ 'bytes.pm' }++ if $] < 5.006 use bytes; }
This will cause 5.005 and below to ignore "use bytes" and cause 5.6+ to use the bytes pragma as usual? Nifty!

Thanks for the help, Josh
