    Why isn't it documented? How official is this? For example, can I rely on

    our $VERSION = version::qv('1.0.0');

    without doing use version; first? (Ignore compatibility with 5.8.)

      I don't know, appears to be a case of "some patch got accepted"
      can I rely on our $VERSION = version::qv('1.0.0'); without doing use version; first?
      In counter-example, the utf8 and Win32 doc specifically say what can be assumed to be available without loading the module, so unless you can find a similar guarantee in the version doc, I think you'd be overly trusting to do so.
