This suppose to be drop-in compatible with 5.7?


perl, v5.10.0

All tests pass building Catalyst-Runtime but it's very noisy:

Subroutine uninitialize redefined at /usr/share/perl5/Class/C3.pm line 88.
Subroutine reinitialize redefined at /usr/share/perl5/Class/C3.pm line 101.

But, I suspect that's 5.10.0 on this test machine.  I had to clean up a
bunch of those for my apps when I upgraded as well.

Running make test on an application that passes all tests with 5.7015
results in:

Failed 14/113 test scripts. 325/616 subtests failed.
Files=113, Tests=616, 127 wallclock secs (60.45 cusr +  4.38 csys = 64.83 CPU)
Failed 14/113 test programs. 325/616 subtests failed.

Sorry, I didn't have time to look into this, so I'll just paste a few
errors I saw:

A few private plugins and views complain that NEXT is crap.  Hopefully
I'll find time to get those updated before the current non-crap
becomes crap, too.

A few failed the "Class::MOP::is_class_loaded($class)" test.

    require App::Model::Foo was successful but the package is
    not defined


    Compilation failed in require at
    /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.0/Class/MOP.pm line 151.

    Undefined subroutine &Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst::Aux::request

There's a fair amount of noise due to that, but I think that's causing
the build of the test failures.

I suspect this is doing the most damage:

    require App::Model::Foo was successful but the package is
    not defined

which is not entirely clear what that means.
