Modules being removed from core

Something said while I was installing a module in 5.11.4:

> " Class::ISA will be removed from the Perl core distribution in 
>   the next major release "

So, who knew?  And how can one easily get a list of what modules are
going to be removed from core?

Module::CoreList does know which modules are supposedly deprecated
(although it doesn't mean deprecated, it means taken out of core -
actual deprecated modules like File::Copy are staying) but provides no
interface for getting a list of them.

The only way to find out that I can see is to read the source for
Module::CoreList, and search for %deprecated.
