Hm, I now see it wasn't really shipped with 5.10.0: it's a generated file
and not present in the orig.tar.gz. It's listed in upstream .gitignore,
which is why I missed that.
Given this, it's not clear to me if it should be in Module::CoreList
or not. Possibly the entries up to 5.9.5 were the bug here.
I'll check this on the perl5-porters list.
The list is updated for each release by running Porting/corelist.pl in
the Perl source tree.
Apologies for not looking at this properly earlier.
