Can we please stop stepping on each other's toes in the global namespace?
I'd like to see Module::*mumble*::loaded_version_of_package_as_object()
and Module::*mumble*::loaded_version_of_package_as_string().  There's no
need for either of them to be a method and thus occupy a very public and
contested space.  I'd also like to see a check_loaded_version_of_package()
function that doesn't get led astray by those naughty modules that use
->VERSION as an ersatz ->import.
