A dumb fix like that is easy to do, but not very scalable. It's going
to break again as soon as someone adds «use warnings;» to Exporter,
and then we're left with three pieces.

Another crude but effective fix might be to rewrite that test so that
it doesn't use Exporter, but I kind of suspect that's going to break
other things.

All of this is fragile in ways that seem non-trivial to make non-fragile.
