in thread Beware List::MoreUtils natatime()!

Looking into the source of List::MoreUtils, I find:
require Carp; Carp::croak "some message";
That only works if Carp was already loaded. In older versions of Perl, there was a common pragma (vars?) that loaded it, but that no longer is loaded in 5.10.

Hence the error. And another reason to not use List::MoreUtils.

    This fix is so trivial, it's not a real reason to avoid it.

      The natatime function is so trivial to write, there being a trivial fix is not a real reason to use a broken module.
