in thread [OT] Why I don't use Mysql for new projects

It seems that a similar idea has been applied to the Perl core for 5.11, and it'll be enabled through use 5.11;. It applies strict and warnings in a local scope instead of globally, so things that don't work with it don't break. As Rafael Garcia-Suarez points out, globally adding strict+warnings doesn't need a patch to Perl but only a source filter.

    The use 5.11; feature is good and welcome, but its goal is very different: to reduce the amount of boilerplate necessary to enable newer features. The goal of strictperl is to experiment with a Perl that forces you to be explicit about where you need to avoid strictures; it's an experiment in maintainability and reliability in Perl 5. (The suggestion "Can't you just use a source filter?" I find silly.)
