This perl package will be in CentOS 5.3. I'm just astonished that there
is another fix for that, as the "current" package in CentOS has this in
the changelog:

* Fri Aug 29 2008 Marcela Maslanova <mmaslano at redhat.com> -
* 4:5.8.8-15.el5.1
- add upstream fix for bless/overload problem (changes
  31996,32018,32019, 32025) and perl-5.8.8-bug24254.patch. Without this patch had
  bless poor performance.  - Resolves: rhbz#460308
