Not planning on suggesting it for maintperl, only bleadperl.  I think I have 
already convince Jarkko to include the magic v-string code in 5.8.1, but I 
wasn't planning to push the version objects back.  I will always have the CPAN 
compatibility module for earlier Perl's (and that will be as far back as I can 
manage it).

And I thought we _were_ having the discussion. ;~)
