 This could potentially break code written on 5.30.0 that expects "0x10" to numify to 16, but
 the bug fixed has the potential of silently(!) breaking code written with older perls that
 expect it to be 0.
+steveh - The potential breakage here makes me wonder if this is better left for 5.32 rather
+than being backported to a maint release? H.Merijn's data on the ticket shows a change in
+behaviour between 5.29.1 and 5.29.2, i.e. between 5.28 and 5.30. There was also an earlier
+change between 5.6.2 and 5.8.0 - again between major versions.  Users might expect it to be
+stable throughout 5.30 and not revert back until 5.32?
