perl5.9.1 thoughts
Message ID:
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):

Is this still pending?
