I feel that Perl 5.36.0 SHOULD fix its own broken behavior regarding stack traces.

Just don't fix it in any 5.34.x or 5.32.x etc.

The 5.36.0 release is a major release and is far enough away that DBIx::Class 
should be able to get fixed to not rely on the broken behavior in time for its 

The fix shouldn't be put off another year.  If anyone depends on something that 
depends on the broken behavior, they should not upgrade past 5.34.x until their 
other dependencies are updated for compatibility.
