Is List::Util now part of the core? It wasn't in 5.6, which made me not use it.

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    It is now; that's why I use it. I would be reluctant to use a non-core module for such trivial functions.

    Whether or not you can get away with expecting that your users will have either perl-5.8+ or install List::Util on an older version depends on your particular circumstances.
