This is a bug report for perl from root@cerebro.laendle,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.8.1.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

SYNOPSIS says:

           use UNIVERSAL qw( isa can VERSION );

DESCRIPTION says:

       These subroutines should not be imported via "use UNIVERSAL
       qw(...)".  If you want simple local access to them you can do

If an import shouldn't be used then it should be said why, and if
imports can be used this paragraph should be dropped (I guess it wasn't
implemented but now is).

[Please do not change anything below this line]
