Please add a variant of do() function which will only compile the referenced
Perl file (and make its routines available to the calling file), without
executing any imperative code (except of such things as `use` and `BEGIN`
blocks) in the included file (like `perl -c` does).

I don't think this is practical.

'use'd modules can define classes and export functions that change how your code is parsed, meaning code that is otherwise valid would fail to compiler under this option.

Also, in the other direction, C< use strict; > can make code that's valid without it invalid.

I mis-read your proposal. Sorry.
