OK, so let's not change it NOW, but SOON, could we wrap all that in
"if ( $] < 5.009XXX )" so that the files can be identical?  It would
really be good to make blead patching as nearly automatic as possible
-- and without any more file munging than we have to.

Plus -- since we now have tools that compare dual-life versions in
blead and on CPAN, version.pm is always going to be flagged.
