perl5i is a Perl pragma that swiftly enables the features of a collection of
modules and techniques used to fix Perl 5's warts. It includes changing core
functions, adding features and changing defaults, so it will likely not be
100% backwards compatible with standard Perl 5 syntax. However, this pragma
tries to limit the damage by having a lexical effect.
