|Subject:||Do not require clobbering Fatal|
Replacing the existing Fatal.pm causes trouble with packaged Perl distributions (RPMs and the like) because you have two packages claiming to own the same file. If the perl core is upgraded then Fatal.pm will get clobbered back again. Also from a cautious sysadmin's point of view, installing a new module is fairly safe but replacing a Perl core module is not. Is it possible to have autodie install Fatal_for_autodie.pm instead and load that? If autodie interacts badly with the old version of Fatal, then check at load time that a program does not try to load both.
