If the module authors decline to put such information into the docs, how does a casual Perl programmer know about the risks?

I believe this was the reason for annocpan. Look at the upper right hand corner of IO::All. You should see a link to annocpan for IO::All. Unfortunately, no one has annotated IO::All.

    Yeah, annocpan is cool. But even if there was something posted there, a lot of people wouldn't bother to look at it.
      Users emailing the module author to suggest changes to the documentation would be far far cooler, precisely because do few people - myself included - bother to look at annocpan when having problems.

      If an author isn't receptive to such useful feedback, then I probably don't want to use his code anyway.
