CPAN versus bleadperl
Message ID:
I've been building CPAN modules against bleadperl, just to see how broken
the things are. (And I encourage you to do so. I haven't exhausted the
Phalanx 100 yet.)

Good news : things are not broken that much :)

First thing, I get *lots* of warnings "Deprecated use of my() in
conditional" in the test suites.

Secondly, here are the failures I got so far: 

PAR 0.79_07 (Autrijus knows about this)
libxml-perl 0.07 (notably XML::Parser::PerlSAX)
XML::Twig 3.13

the last two seem to be related to encoding stuff. We may
hit backward incompatibilities here; or bugs.
