    The docs say:
    WARNING: Subroutine signatures are experimental. The feature may be modified or removed in future versions of Perl.
    ... which doesn't exactly inspire confidence ;)

      I think the Perl developers have learned from given and smartmatch and keep new features labeled "experimental" to be able to remove them from the language again if they prove to be untractable.
