Apologies for the curt response to this detailed explanation, but I
definitely support trying to make this implementation more intuitive as
long as it can be done without breaking compatibility of common paradigms
(such as interaction with importers like Moose, or using strict and
warnings explicitly after use VERSION even though it may enable them). The
one thing that would be worse than the current situation is if code
silently had less strictures/warnings enabled than before, or enabled
additional strictures than intended in production.
