Let me add that there is an IRC channel called #toolchain on and maintainers of most of the modules that Craig is
talking about hang out there.  If you need help or want to make a
coordinated effort to get patches into multiple modules, that's
another avenue.  (Patches to toolchain queues or pull
requests from their repos are fine, too.)

But given the chicken and egg situation, you may need to just patch
everything in the perl source first and confirm it works.  If you do
that, then please submit patches separately for each module in the
"cpan/" directory so it will be easier for maintainers to take them
back upstream.
