Beware Class::Fields 0.14 in the CPAN - it breaks 5.8.0
Message ID:

MSCHWERN/Class-Fields-0.14.tar.gz says that it has a version of that is newer than the version in 5.8, so the CPAN shell
recommends that you install it. However, the version of it
installs is older than the version in 5.8, and breaks things.

I've contacted Schwern about it, but he has no immediate plans to
update it. This is bad, because SPOPS depends on it, and therefore
OpenInteract is also busted.

Beware when updating your 5.8 installation: you could be breaking it.

And since it contains "" and "", shouldn't it be
brought into the core distro?  Or should those two pragmas be removed
from the next release of Class::Fields?  What's the right way to do this?
