Hey, don't drag me into this. Rebase is (currently) a necessary evil
for python and maybe perl, but I gave up maintaining perl a LONG time
ago and I don't intend to stick my nose into it now. It's Gerritt's
baby, and I trust him to do whatever is necessary to make stuff work.
But, he's asked for help -- so help, dammit, don't carp.
There's no reason that one can't continue using the current perl 5.8.0-1
for a while after 1.5.1 goes gold. (Perl won't be able to manipulate
big files or big uid's -- but it can't handle 'em now, so what's the
diff?) I reckon Gerritt will keep perl in 'test' mode until he's happy
with it, and not switch it over to 'current' a moment earlier.
