Ensure that a platform has weaken support
One recurring problem in modules that use Scalar::Util's weaken function is that it is not present in the pure-perl variant.
While this isn't necesarily always a problem in a straight CPAN-based Perl environment, some operating system distributions only include the pure-Perl versions, don't include the XS version, and so weaken is then "missing" from the platform, despite passing a dependency on Scalar::Util successfully.
Most notably this is RedHat Linux at time of writing, but other come and go and do the same thing, hence "recurring problem".
The normal solution is to manually write tests in each distribution to ensure that weaken is available.
