[PATCH] bleadperl to version-0.71
Message ID:
Attached please find a patch that brings bleadperl up to date with version-0.71,
soon to hit CPAN, which includes some new features:

1) Polymorphic errors (based on a suggestion by Jan Dubois):

    use module 1.000;  # errors with 'module version 1.000 required'
    use module v1.0.0; # errors with 'module version v1.0.0 required'

2) CPAN release only - finally support non-magic v-strings everywhere they can
be used (i.e. 5.6.0 - 5.8.0 inclusive)

3) I had to change the signature of Perl_upg_version(), so this patch touches a
few other spots (and requires 'make regen_headers').

I'm think this is the last remaining major changes to version objects.  When
v5.10.0 is imminent, I will bump this to a 1.000 and stop changing anything
(though I will of course fix bugs).
