Lost Data::Dumper-5.8 compatibility
Message ID:
I recently released a new dev version of Data::Dumper. That version lost 
5.8.9 compatibility. Given the rather low level of D::D in the 
toolchain, I'd really rather keep it working on 5.8.1 and up (or so) for 
some time. Does somebody have an idea what could have caused this?

Are we just testing for the non-existence of a bug that was fixed in 
core outside of Data::Dumper? Should we only run the test if perl is 
5.10 or better? Is the test bogus? Is it a real DD code change that 
breaks stuff on 5.8?
