Subject: Add info about namespaces autoloaded at startup (utf8, version, mro...)
It would be helpful to know for each perl version the list of namespaces which are automatically loaded at perl startup. That list would be similar to the result of: perl -e 'print "$_\n" for grep s/::$//, keys %::' Use case: I discovered that the 'mro' module is loaded by default on 5.10.1, but not 5.12. It would be also interesting to have a second list that also includes namespaces that are loaded when a particular Perl version is selected. For example, for Perl 5.10.1 that second list would add 'feature' and 'Carp'. -- Olivier Mengué - http://perlresume.org/DOLMEN

Well, not exactly that. In fact I was using mro::get_linear_isa() which is in the core mro:: subset from 5.10.1 but not in the subset of 5.12. So I consider that I was using an undocumented feature. perl -E 'print "$_\n" for keys %mro::' perl -Mmro -E 'print "$_\n" for keys %mro::'
