Lobbying for early consideration of two patches
Message ID:
I am unable to deliver some other patches that depend on these, or 
rather, would cause merge hassles.

The first is a trivial patch that removes the need in perldiag.pod to 
double backslashes, as they are not output by Perl to the user doubled. 
  It's a one line change in a diag.t, plus the changes to the data it 
examines to remove the extra backslashes.  I have code that will change 
some of these diagnostic messages, so I'm waiting for this to be fixed 
before delivering that to avoid merge hassles.  The url is:

The second is performance enhancements to mktables (and an option useful 
to me for development when running it by hand).  This is not trivial, 
but it patches code I wrote, and am intimately familiar with.  This 
patch just barely didn't make the 5.12 freeze deadline, and has been 
hanging out since.  There are several enhancements to \N{} processing 
that need mktables changes, and it's just easier for me to know if these 
changes are going to make it into blead or not.
