Perlhist incorrect?
Message ID:
Doing a bit of perl history digging I discovered that perlhist may be
incorrect.  It reports that user subs were introduced in the middle of the
perl 3 series, but they appear to exist in perl 2 already

I've got a live example here (you can fork and edit it and interact with
perl2 easily there, or just start a new pastebin directly in perl2)

My only suspicion is that User-subs means something else when it's
mentioned in perlhist, but it's not obvious what that is.  If I'm not nuts,
I'll make a patch to update perlhist with the correct version.
