If that makes perlcritic shut up, possibly. Although I suspect it wouldn't - we tend to put common pragmas like that in our internal "our::way" module, which also does things like enabling strictures and (most) warnings, unicode strings, English variables, etc. etc. in the calling package. So perlcritic wouldn't see autodie in the source and would still bitch and moan.
