Btw, Nicholas says this should block 5.18:

<@Nicholas> ilmari: this is a bug we need to fix
<@Nicholas> wasn't aware that it broke Time::HiRes too
<@ilmari> it breaks subtly
<@ilmari> it doesn't fail to build or test, just misses a bunch of features
<@Nicholas> I think that this needs to become a blocker
<@ilmari> severity? high?
<@Nicholas> I think high, yes
<@Nicholas> if it's breaking stuff at runtime without warning, I think it's high
