  Description     : pragma for making experimental features easy

The experimental pragma provides an easy and convenient way to enable or
disable experimental features.

Experimental features were introduced in Perl 5.18, together with a warnings
category "exmperimental". When such features are used, the respective
warnings have to be turned off additionally.

Cf. https://metacpan.org/module/RJBS/perl-5.18.0/pod/perldelta.pod#New-mechanism-for-experimental-features
