We discussed that as a possible idea. It would mean dual-life shipping, so that older perls can install a newer file from
CPAN that quiets warnings about stablised experiments. This would mean
generating it at build time in some sort of way that can apply to older
perls as well. It would take a bit of engineering effort to make it
work, but likely something could be achieved.
