The request goes beyond what can reasonably be deparsed.  Setting the
version number is quite reasonably a purely compile-time effect, and
B::Deparse's job is to deparse code, not to examine all the state of
a package.  One can't expect deparsed output to reflect everything that
went on at compile time.  This ticket should be closed.
