Along the same lines, pod/perldelta.pod (i.e., the perldelta for 5.18)
has this entry under Updated Modules and Pragmata:

L<B::Debug> has been upgraded to 1.18.

This adds support (experimentally) for C<B::PADLIST>, which will be
added in Perl 5.17.4.

Well, I wonder, was it added in 5.17.4, which was probably 8 months ago?
