Seriously, I don't see the point of forking. You'd want to fragment even more
the little resources we have for Perl 5 ? If someone sees me as an impediment
and wants the patch pumpkin, then ask.

perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later
all men will do and know all things.
