A few random thoughts about more unfinished business:

- building bleadperl with Borland currently doesn't work:

- the behaviour of pseudo-fork inside a BEGIN seems to have been 
changed. Not sure if it's OK or not:

- one of my modules currently doesn't work with bleadperl: see bug 
#41030, and also here:

- ext/threads/shared/t/cond.t currently hangs just about every time 
(which is the cause of the absence of any bleadperl smokes from my 
machine for ages):

- ext/IO/t/io_sock.t currently hangs when perl is built with VC8. It is 
noted in README.win32, but a fix would be nicer.
