You missed my point.  I wasn't objecting to having the global switch,
only to the fact that turning it on and off doesn't do what a rational
person would expect.  If it's going to advertise itself as USERSET then
it darn well ought to be settable.

The idea of loading the strict module unconditionally seems ok to me,
if we can work out a way of making it apply or not apply to individual
function compilations.  From what you were saying, perhaps it would
work to implicitly add "strict->import();" when use_strict is enabled?
