That would be great, please checkout bleadperl to do the patch!

rsync -auvz rsync:// /target/directory

If you have questions about how to compile, feel free to ask.

If a patch gets accepted by the perl5-porters then it is in the next release.
I suggest this will happen soon so I plan to make no more releases of the 5.6

And if it is neccessary to do so it would be easy to integrate it there too.
