I call that an understatement :-)

On which code base are you doing this threads/regexp work?

I guess the Perl 5.6 developer track, of which the 5.005_62 is the
latest release, would be the primary choice to work on.  Many changes
(such as utf8) have happened since the 5.005, which is in maintenance
mode and currently at 5.005_03.
