While forking the whole perl subsection of the distro is a bit drastic, 
I am quite happy to have a perl in C5Plus. Does someone want to get in 
touch with Keith and get a summary on what needs fixing in this case ? 
Also - if the conversation was to take place on centos-devel list, would 
be much cooler.

Upstream have said the fix will be in 5U3, and considering that might be 
still a few months away, could we get something sorted before then ?

( questions, since I dont use perl myself )
