Description of problem:
The perl-CGI-Session package in Fedora is outdated.
Is there any particuliar reason Fedora is still shipping this version?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CGI-Session-4.35 (Release date: July 15, 2008)
- Current version in CPAN is CGI-Session-4.48 (Release date: July 11th, 2011)
- Building CGI-Session-4.35 raises a lot of warnings related to "deprecated perl constructs" => it will likely be unbuildable, soon.

Minimum patch to avoid qw warnings
If you do not have enough time to test newer CGI::Session,
please apply this patch as a minimum work around. Please!
Bump; crosslink to bug#754689
I've sent a mail to the perl-sig group to see if anyone there is able to apply the patch to fix this since there has been no response from the package maintainer.
