Me too. I think a 'centosfix' repository with lower release numbers than 
the expected RH fix may be useful. Calling it centosfix also makes it 
obvious these are centos packages, and not RH rebuild packages.

This 'centosfix' concept could be stretched to fix some other packages 
with known problems until upstream gets them fixed. And is a deliberate 
opt-in from users that need them (and understand the risks).

If there is a market for the slow-perl fix, and more of these packages 
would see the light of day, I would prefer a 'centosfix' repository over a 
mixed fast(t)rack repository. But only if we can deliver...
