The ‘const’ attribute is being added as an experimental feature in perl 5.22.0. This ticket will collect bugs and other acceptance-criteria tickets to track before :cosnt can be considered accepted or failed in a future version of perl. -- Father Chrysostomos

This ticket has had no attention whatsoever. This means that either (a) the feature is bug-free and perfect, or that (b) nobody is using it, or that (c) those who are using it are very silent. If a is the case, then this feature no longer needs to be experimental. If b is the case, it should definitely remain experimental. If c is the case, would somebody please speak up and give opinions on the feature (whether it works and is designed well, whether it is designed poorly, whether it seems like a good design but has bugs, etc.). -- Father Chrysostomos

Sounds good to me. Though can we add something like the attached patch to the documentation for clarity? -- Matthew Horsfall (alh)
