It isn't committed yet, no. I also asked rjbs off-list whether it was
ok to go ahead since nobody had replied either way, but I haven't
heard back yet. That's really my fault for leaving it too late in the
day before asking, although I had my reasons for not feeling inclined
to return to that thread for nearly a year... I would like to think
that an exception can be made for this - it's only a small change to
add the setting of $^E, without affecting the existing setting of $!
at all.
