A recent update to Dancer apparently introduced a requirement for the 
'mro' module, which is a Perl 5.10+ thing according to:


I hope this can be fixed.  One of the key reasons I chose Dancer is that 
it still worked on Perl 5.8, which is what RHEL 5 shipped with, which 
will still be in support for years: http://goo.gl/gUzmww

It's too early to be dropping Perl 5.8, IMHO.  Yes, I know, Modern Perl, 
12 years old, yadda yadda.  Perl 5.8 was the current version for over 5 
years, so it got itself into a *lot* of places before 5.10 finally came 
around to displace it.
