Bug#758287: apt-show-versions: Warning "keys on reference is experimental" with Perl 5.20

Package: apt-show-versions
Version: 0.22.3
User: debian-perl@lists.debian.org
Usertags: perl-5.20-transition


since Perl 5.20, apt-show-versions throws the following Perl warnings
upon each invocation:

$ apt-show-versions > /dev/null
keys on reference is experimental at /usr/bin/apt-show-versions line 264.
keys on reference is experimental at /usr/bin/apt-show-versions line 359.

According to
this feature "may change or be removed in a future Perl version", hence
the severity of this bug report may be raised to RC in the future.

See http://perldoc.perl.org/perldelta.html#New-Warnings for reasoning
and background.
