The creation of ensembl VM 99 exposed some issues with installing Try::Tiny with cpanm on perl 5.14.4 using plenv. Try::Tiny has been already in use for a few releases with no issues, but added to the cpan file this release. Using perl 5.26.1 fixes the problem, but given that the Try::Tiny dependency is used in only one module and is easily replaced with alternative methods it would perhaps be good to drop it.
One less external perl module dependency. VM build can happen in perl 5.14
Discourages future usage of Try::Tiny
