Try it and see!  I'm serious.  It'll be an interesting experiment.

BTW  The modules themselves might be -w clean, but the testing suite
certainly isn't!

Sorry, misspoke.  That works.  This does not:

PERL5OPT='-Mwarnings -Mstrict' perl -wle 'print keys %INC'
unkown warnings category '-Mstrict' at -e line 0
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

It seems to be parsing that as: C<use warnings '-Mstrict'>.  IMHO this
is a bug.
