Perl 5.10.1
Message ID:

As an exercise, I checked out the perl-5.10 git tag and then
cherry-picked Rick Delaney's "Big slowdown in 5.10 @_ parameter
passing " commit [1]. I ran all the tests and they pass on my machine.
Obviously a bit more smoke testing is needed, but I took this as a
good sign.

This is in response to chromatic's comments [2]:

Is pointing out that a patch for a known performance regression
languishing, unreleased, in bleadperl for 17 months a problem? Is that
criticism dismissible from everyone who isn't currently a Perl 5
committer or the maintainer of a core module?

I think that releasing Perl 5.10.1 with only this change is very
valuable to the Perl community, so I went and tried to help it along.

Is this a viable option?
