361 - Fix hash order dependency bug in deprecated_in().
362 Tests would would fail or succeed depending on what order keys()
363 would return the version list in. List::Utils::min() considers
364 '5.011' and '5.011000' to be equivalent, and returns the first
365 whichever it encounters. Changing to List::Utils::minstr() fixes
366 this.
