As far as I understood is the idea that you will still be capable to switch off the new default pragmas.

like no warnings

Tho I don't know if this will work with :prototype() too.

edit

I really hope they won't introduce the experimental function signatures, since they lack named arguments.

    That's strange. Why would you block a thing which is considered useful by quite a few Perlers only because some feature isn't available right now? Wouldn't it be better to suggest a parseable syntax how to write named arguments?
      As soon as it is official, it'll be very hard to introduce named arguments.

      I don't care a lot about most of the fancy stuff Dave wants to implement, but "named args" are crucial.

      IMHO 10% of the extra effort but 90% of the benefit.

        So perhaps a more positive way of putting it would be "I hope they wait until named arguments are working before they make it official." I would agree with that.
