[Melbourne-pm] Can Dependant modules be configured by Perl Version

The IO::Interaction documentation on CPAN doesn't mention version.pm as
a dependency. Installing on 5.10 (ubuntu 9.04) isn't a problem because
version.pm is included in the core of 5.10.
But when installing IO::Interactive on 5.8.6 (HPUX 10.20) the install
# Error: Can't locate version.pm in @INC
Is this a bug in IO::Interactive (that version.pm isn't considered a
dependancy) or a "feature" in Perl that a module's declared dependancies
cannot be Perl version specific?
