It looks unlikely that Regexp::Copy is going to get fixed upstream.
The only reverse dependency in Debian is libhtml-formfu-perl, so it
would be good if we could get it to use something else.
I looked briefly at the HTML::FormFu code, and although it doesn't
import anything from Regexp::Copy, it seems to be using Regexp::Storable
(included in libregexp-copy-perl) behind the curtains.
Removing 'use Regexp::Copy' from FormFu.pm makes t/filters/regex.t break.
Cloning a separate bug; this should be discussed upstream.
