I’m currently having to modify a library that used Smart::Match extensively since I can no longer turn off the zillions of lines of experimental warnings in recent Perls. For people who are in a similar situation it’s looking like Data::Compare can replace the situations where I was doing ‘@foo ~~ @bar’, and it’s easy enough to write a “does this hash have this key” helper.

Meta complaint: I was already a bit annoyed at the whole smartmatch “oh whoops actually this is now experimental” saga but now that I’m stuck fixing this breakage I’m $annoyed++. Im getting annoyed enough that I may choose an older Perl that was “good enough” and just stop using the new ones
