Jesse held the pumpkin for two years.  I have squared that, to four.  The
tradition established, the next pumpking will do the job for sixteen years.
They will fly by, trust us!

Who will this lucky soul be?  Sawyer!

Sawyer bravely volunteered to take on the pumpkin, and I know he will do a good
job of it.  For those of you who have not worked with him before, I will assure
you that he is a patient, thoughtful, intelligent, humble human being.

I will still release Perl v5.24.0 and v5.25.0 on schedule, after which time I
will consider myself off the hook, and Sawyer on it.  I have tried to keep
things in a state that will not cause him too much distress.

Good luck, Sawyer!  Remember, if the coming sixteen years seem daunting, at
least you got in now, and now when the term was up to a cool 256.
