While I'm aware that done_testing($number_of_tests) is a newer addition to Test::More (and, as such, could be referred to as a modern way), I'm not convinced that using done_testing() is the modern way. I can see that I'm possibly misinterpreting your intent: perhaps you could clarify, particularly with respect to any special situations or conditions that you considered implicit in your statement.

++choroba makes a good argument for specifying the number of tests. Another, which has certainly happened to me, is being interrupted in the process of writing a series of planned tests and then, on resumption of the task, accidentally skipping one that hadn't been written yet: specifying the number of tests up-front catches that too.

Test::More's documentation, in the (cutely named) "I love it when a plan comes together" section, has "The preferred way to do this is to declare a plan ..."; and later, in the done_testing bullet point, "This is safer than and replaces the "no_plan" plan.".
