Pod::Checker and most pod2* things will warn about an =over without a
number.  Its not required (thus leaving POD Plain), but it is
considered a Good Thing.

The patch should go in (it removed POD warnings) since the work has
been done and removing warnings from the core is Good.  If you don't
like the warning, take it up with the Pod::* authors.  The issue is
orthogonal to this patch.
