Right. Hmm... I wonder if this is something we can test with a de- 
parser, formatter or something like TidyView.

So we can say - check for Perl XYZ compatibility.

 From a manual point of view about the only thing I can think of is  
things like attributes (not normally added by Module-Starter) and  
'use version' - which is I think dependent on 5.8+
