I built a sizable chink of CPAN (Catalysty webby stuff, SVK, some other
random stuff I use, plus gazillions of dependencies) with bleadperl from
about a week ago.  Most things were OK of course (see but a handful of modules
wouldn't build or failed tests.

I didn't really investigate since I was concerned with testing
Devel::Cover at the time, and so I don't know whether the problems are
something to be fixed in the core or in the modules themselves, but it
would obviously be good if all the major modules (whatever that means)
worked well with 5.10 when it is released.
