I mean, honestly.
There is no reason for UNIVERSAL.pm to be loaded, as it does two things: set a
VERSION and setup an &import. The import should not be used, as we've been
asking people to stop for quite some time now, and it's just a lousy idea. The
VERSION isn't necessary because (a) there's no code to worry about changing and
(b) the version is directly determinable from $] outside of blead, anyway.
This patch introduces a lexical 'deprecated' warning'.
