in thread What esteemed monks think about changes necessary/desirable in Perl 7 outside of OO staff

As I understand it, the current thinking is that the strict-by-default feature will just be the same strict-by-default feature that has existed since Perl 5.12.

So a use v7; will turn on strictures, but if a script doesn't have a version declaration, it won't default to strict.

If implemented this way, it has no chance of breaking old scripts.
