Regex /m modifier bug in Perl 5.8.8 and older

It’s 2016, but the CPAN Pull Request Challenge continues. Motivated by my 100% in 2015, I subscribed to the second year, as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to blog about my January PR, but it would have been more about Git than Perl, anyway.

My March assignment was Plack::Middleware::ReverseProxyPath. I noticed the module had several testers’ failures, and looking at the matrix I noticed Perl 5.8.8 was all red in both Linux and Darwin, so I decided to have a look at that.
