in reply to Regex re_eval - requires explicit package name

Should I consider this a bug?

I think probably not, I vaguely recall that with this experimental feature, you're supposed to use dynamic/local vars instead of lexical/my vars

update: Re: (??{ code }) versus (?PARNO) for recursive regular expressions (lexicals won't stay shared ), Variable scoping oddity inside (??{ ... }), (??{ lexical variable }), Scoping issues with code evaluation asserstions?

    That's because the code was exceedingly buggy and would usually use the wrong pad, resulting in unexpected behaviour or seg faults before 5.17.1 (for which I completely rewrote the feature). Its now safe and sane to use lexicals, modulo any new bugs I may have introduced.
