STDERR is not necessarily the same thing as file descriptor 3
s/3/2/

In recent Perl there's no need to use package variables for file handles to achieve this.

open my $olderr, '>&', \*STDERR or die $!; #... open STDERR, '>&', $olderr or die $!;

    Re: lexical file handles -- True. I just went along with the code that was already there. Lexicals can be used for file handles since Perl 5.6.0.
