To clarify this, Dancer2 does *not* use Scope::Upper. It uses Return::MultiLevel which *might* use Scope::Upper if it's available.

When you install Dancer2, it will pull in Return::MultiLevel which doesn't *require* Scope::Upper. If you try to install Scope::Upper it will fail (hence this ticket), but Return::MultiLevel will just use a Pure-Perl implementation (because mauke is awesome) and Dancer2 will simply use that.

It's important to note, this does not break Dancer2. It does make it slower by making Return::MultiLevel slower. Or, more accurately, does not allow it to be faster by utilizing Scope::Upper.
