It doesn't seem sensible to fill up the pods with history like this.
In fact, perltrap has listed the feature as discontinued rather than
deprecated, since at least 5.002.  It's been gone for well over a year
and nobody's complained.   Let's just bury it.    I suggest replacing
Robin's patch by

p5p-msgid: <E0vilLh-0000M6-00@ursa.cus.cam.ac.uk>
pod/perlsyn.pod
