Subject: Please remove the experimental -convert_blessed_universally option
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 583b
We hit an issue in production here at work where something stopped working because of the maxdepth problem described in RT #69620. This whole feature is just crazy IMO, nothing should be inserting stuff into UNIVERSAL at a distance like this, it means that loading random code that uses this -convert_blessed_universally option will screw with everything *globally*. We weren't even using JSON.pm in the code that broke, we were using JSON::XS. Please just remove this, it's not all that useful compared to just specifying options explicitly, and causes weird action at a distance.
