I was hoping someone else would come up with that plan and take 
ownership of it :D However, what I intend to do today is backport the 
fix's into the latest version of perl already released into CentOS-5 so 
its available as an interim fix. I am sure something will come down the 
line from upstream, and when it does we can replace our interim fix with 
whatever does come down, when it comes down. Stay tuned.

not me no.
