On one hand we have a CPAN breaking change, but on the other hand, Dave
has fixed a bug in the interpreter. In this specific case, I believe the
use-case is edge enough to not justify such a CPAN breakage. (I might be
wrong, surely.)

I am comfortable waiting for a comment from Vincent, or someone more
knowledgeable on this, in order to decide whether to revert or not. If
Dave feels comfortable to revert now and wait to decide whether to merge
it back or revise it later, I am comfortable with that option too.
