Description

The way that I use Switch in Bugzilla::Auth requires that people have the Filter::Util::Call module installed. For some reason this doesn't seem to ship in the "perl" package, at least in Red Hat, even though Switch requires it, and Switch ships with perl.

Ok, seems to work on Linux even though name doesn't exactly fit in the column. :)

It's confusing to check for something Bugzilla doesn't use directly. I would say it's a Perl problem if Filter::Util::Call is missing while Switch.pm is available.

Okay. Yeah, actually, I agree with LpSolit. You can see that Filter::Util::Call is perldoc'ed as part of base perl:

http://perldoc.perl.org/Filter/Util/Call.html

(CPAN-only modules don't show up on that site.)

So that means that somebody's been messing with their installation if they don't have Filter::Util::Call, and thus we don't need to add this check.
