If you're talking about the "smartmatch" or "given-when" introduced in Perl 
5.10, it was actually a superbly GOOD idea that they were turned experimental. 
These features were broken and troublesome from day one, and should have been 
marked experimental from the start, had the 'experimental' feature existed. 
Marking them such now makes it possible to eventually fix or remove those broken 
features, while giving people time to not use them or know what they're getting 
into if they do.  I also don't think they were actively and widely used, or not 
anywhere close to features that existed in Perl prior to 5.10. -- Darren Duncan
