What I’ve been doing is adding it to Porting/perl5200delta.pod’s Known
Issues section and then closing the ticket.  If it has fewer than 5
dependents, though, I just close the ticket.

The idea is that high-profile modules will be noted in 5.20.0’s delta. 
Or if the pumpking decides they are too high-profile, the release may be
delayed.  But at least they all get listed in one place for the
pumpking’s convenience.
