It isn't "*very much* flawed" - it has fewer bugs than 5.005_03.

We on p5p know about the messy bits in our own corners - but that is 
like decorating your house - you can see that you got paint on the glass
there and the pattern in the wallpaper does not line up over there
but outsiders don't notice.

The UNICODE support cannot really be finished till those of us with 
modules that can use it give it a try.

I will probably deploy 5.6.1 as a stable release - the only thing that 
stops me depoying 5.6.0 is the "use base vs ->isa" bugglet. I have a bunch
of OO novices that I have just trained up to 'use base' and their enthusiasm
for ->isa tests has yet to be curbed.
