Message ID:
Well, if nothing else, it's just one more thing that you will have to
use yet another use vX.X for some syntactic mutation of the language, 
limiting portability.

    use v5.22;		# need for "err die"

I tire of the scores of incompatible changes that keep making backwards
compatibility impossible, and which people never bother to put a use vN
in about to warn you about.

And in fact, that isn't even good enough, since we have release brackets
for some things.
