    Test::Most, not Test::More. That's a very important difference here.
    Sorry, I'm just used to typing Test::More.

    But that doesn't change my arguments. I wouldn't want any module to turn on a pragma in the calling scope - unless that is its specific purpose. turn::on::all::pragmata should turn it on. But not something from the Test::* namespace.

      I'd say that reducing boilerplate code is one of the main advantages of Test::Most, so I think it will be logically if it will enable strict and warnings. The people who don't love surprises and magic can always replace it with:

      use strict; use warnings; use Test::More; use Test::Exception; use Test::Differences; use Test::Deep; use Test::Warn;
        It's not that I think the person typing in use Test::Most will be surprised.

        It's the person inheriting the code.
