What would you all like to see in 5.9.1? What needs to be done to
make it happen? Who is going to do it?
Here's what I'd like to see:
mjd's lexical pragmas patch (what more is needed for this?)
Rafael's my $_ patch (ditto)
Module::Build (& dependencies)
Some or all of Inline
Ilya had done some work towards making unpack be able to handle any C
structure, but IIRC it came just before a release (and there was some
question as to conflicting with what perl6 will do vis-a-vis pack and
unpack) and so was deferred. I'd like to see this revisited.
I'd like to add:
Hugo's regex rewrite
but don't know what's up with it :)
Nicholas had also said (in the "Snapshot perl@21938" thread):
