This will be taken to be harsh. It is not intended to be so.
This smacks of holiday boredomitis.
In me it manifests itself in the form of expending gratuitous amounts of time attempting to perfect 'good enough' solutions.
In you, it appears to take the form of proposing publishable, but pointless, solutions to invented problems.
Anyone encountering a use Syntax::Construct qw[ ... ]; statement will expend far more time looking up that module and working out what it is 'doing for them'; than they would need to expend if it didn't exist.
Anyone relatively new to Perl (< 4 years) will just assume that the facilities are available through the familiar mechanisms.
Anyone one with longer experience will already be familiar with use 5.010; and use feature qw[ ... ];.
The upshot is that your module would create confusion/waste-the-time-of people in both camps and benefit almost noone.
(You alone might benefit.)
