This version of is also the latest one available on the CPAN
as 1.25.

The major issue is that is now loaded. 400KB.
99.999% of code use only pure ASCII constant names and this recent
change brings much pain to environments that are memory constrained or
for which initialization time is critical.

As a workaround Maddingue released constant::tiny, but this is not a
general solution.
