Subject: Arbitrary drop of 5.6 support in 1.57

5.6 support was dropped in version 1.57 with no more justification than "its time".

No obvious changes in the release indicate why this was, and 1.56 builds and passes tests fine.

https://metacpan.org/diff/file?target=GAAS/URI-1.57/&source=GAAS/URI-1.56/

 

given this is a dependency required to create a working perl 5.6 test box ( Metabase::Client::Simple -> LWP -> URI ), I think we should attempt to revisit this blanket ban so interested parties can get it working again =)
