in reply to Modern::Perl

perhaps there should be a way for this module to gracefully age

I'd say the way to do this is to have the module look at what version of Perl it's running on and do the best it can with what it has. Or maybe it should look at some old crusty version of Perl and say, "this can't be made modern; upgrade!"

    As an aside, I've not found it that difficult to write text mangling code with Unicode support that functions on 5.005 through 5.10. There are some idiosyncracies of course, but there are alternatives to most of the banal modernities like our or delete $F[0].
