I can't understand your obsession with just 'strict'.

My understanding is that out-of-the-box, a perl7 binary will enable by
default,  *a whole bunch of extra stuff*, not just 'strict'.

So for example,  running a plain perl script using a perl7 interpreter is
as if the following lines had been injected at the top of the script:

    use warnings;
    use strict;
    use feature 'signatures';
    no feature 'indirect';
    ... etc ...

is that the same as your understanding?
