How about I add the following entry to the 5.10.1 delta?:

    =head1 Deprecations

    The following items are now deprecated.


    =item *

    C<Switch> is buggy and should be avoided where possible. From perl 5.11.0
    onwards it is intended that any use of the core version of this module
    will emit a warning, and that the module will eventually be removed from
    the core (probably in perl 5.14.0).

By putting it in perl5101delta.pod, it gives more advanced notice
(assuming 5.10.1 is released before 5.12.0 ;-)

Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what
they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.
