I will agree with always 'use strict', I have never [yet] had to not
'use warnings' AFTER development.
Explicitly stating minimum Perl version requirement does not rise to
the same level of concern as  'use strict'  and 'use warnings'.  How
often do you regression test to know the minimum Perl version
requirement anyhow?

Grateful for the lessons in BPB in any event.
