Well to get the best results, one must scour the perldelta(.*) pages for 
upgraded/deprecated/removed modules

shows the modz that

are due to be pulled in 5.19.0 there are others in the later perldeltas 
that are going into the deprecated list as well.


shows CGI.pm going into deprecated status,

has some more as well. I'm not sure

how easy it'd be to script that, a

corelist --dif 5.18.0 5.19.0 | grep absent

Seems to be a good way to determine that, but it implies having 5.19.0 
installed. Maybe we should have a perl-developer-release AUR package to 
simplify the process? though that could get messy with all the community 
modules that may depend on deprecated code from the developer-releases.
