DAVEM TPF Grant#2 May 2016 report
Message ID:
I spent last month mainly getting Scope::Upper working on 5.24.0.
It broke heavily after the context stack reworking that came with 5.23.8,
due to its heavy reliance on the internal details of perl's context stack
and scope exit behaviours.

I don't intend in general spending so much time again on fixing up such
CPAN modules; it's just that once I had started, I wanted to see it
through to completion.
