Deprecated code analyzer for HTML::FormHandler

So the other day I've read Deprecated code analyzer for perl and I thought - this is a GREAT idea! And I stole it for HTML::FormHandler. Now with new releases our users will have a tool to find all the deprecated API calls in their code.

Awesome! Great example of how to attack the problem of deprecations.

I really hope more people will follow what you did for their own modules, and hopefully we will find a way to integrate this into a big and wonderful deprecation tool for all of CPAN.

In the end, maybe we can make a generic tool for perl that can handle deprecations in the interpreter, CPAN and possibly even let developers track deprecations in their own code.
