So we'll need another full recompile of all our extensions? :)
No problem, if it stays then until perl6 or another xs API change,
which will require rebuilds.
Perl6? What is this? There will be perl 5.10, 5.12, 5.14, 5.16, ...
Really? perl6 looks quite good actually. I never thought of a 5.10.
But maybe they'll decide to dump XS in favor of Inline, so this might be
5.10 then. But the whole 5.x architecture (refcounts, types) is a mess.
Of course there will arrive 20 new scheme/lisp's with all the features
perl6 wants to have in the meantime, but perl is perl. :)
