Please send any patches as soon as possible. I'm leaving for
vacation this Saturday, and I will release 5.7.2 before that.

When I return from the Perl Conference I will start a tight
schedule of 5.8.0 Release Candidates.  If you want you can
think of the 5.7.2 as the virtual RC 0.

Updates since the last:
