Pseudo-hashes deprecatedby SavannahLion (Pilgrim)

SavannahLion has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm using Template.pm to experiment with some Perl code. In the documentation it explains that you can create loops with repeating values. Here is the relative section I'm talking about for those who don't have Template.pm.
So I wanted to learn more about how this code worked so I kept reading through the file and experimenting.
Apparently, I'm not having much luck in understanding this. I think it's either because the only time I have to play with Perl for the last several weeks is between 10:00 PM and 1:00 AM, or the total program is just so large and complex, so my poor brain just can't wrap itself around this.
Whenever I experiment with this, I always get a "Pseudo-hashes deprecated" message. I even found a very similar example, but running that example yields an identical error message. Unfortunately, I think there was more to that example, but I lost my place in the PM search and haven't found it yet.
It looked something like:
How is it that when I try to copy this method, I get that such a blatant warning, but Template.pm gets away with using it?
