Re: [perl #132252] Blead Breaks CPAN: Role::Tiny, Variable::Magic,Moo
Message ID:
I'm late here (had a serious move over the week) but I've already
spoken about this with Graham last week and we should revert this for
this release. I tried sending it earlier but I'm also having
networking issues. :)

The problem is not the conversation about which way is more optimized,
how, and why. It is simply how much breakage we have incurred with

It should be reverted and we can reapproach it next release.
