that is great to hear. Welcome!

I can't say I'm a particularly skilled perl porter (in the true sense of 
the words), so I wouldn't be qualified to help with the actual code, but 
maybe give you some hints how contribution of patches works:

The sources are managed with git. We maintain a document that describes 
access to the source repository and general policy here:

In a nutshell, do

git clone git:// perl-git

and apply your changes and build/test. When you're satisfied, create 
patch file(s):

git format-patch -M origin..

and send them to with a description of your
changes. Include the patch files as attachments. If you don't want them 
applied but just want to put them out there for comments, send them to 
the mailing list instead.

This is all laid out in much more detail in the above document.

If in doubt, just ask here or on IRC ( #p5p).
