I really can't see how having one line of boilerplate of maybe 10 characters or so can really be classed as a burden.

Besides that, the day Perl 8 comes out, you will be facing the same issue again. You may require people to add a use v8 pragma, or otherwise, require people to change their old Perl 7 code inserting the use v7 one.

So, in any case, you will have to add the use v7 pragma, the only question is when!
