From a programmer's perspective, nothing has changed. It means you can't rely on the order in which the keys of a hash a returned by keys (except the documented exception).
If the few of p5p are to make changes that can break the code of the many perl users, even if those breakages come as a result of dependence -- accidental or otherwise -- upon long-term actual -- if undocumented -- behaviour, is it unreasonable to ask that the reasoning behind the change that causes that breakage be publicly known?
