  Suggested patches

   Ricardo Signes [12]provided a patch to add missing parts to
   [13]Module::Load that provide the core desired behavior of
   [14]Module::Runtime.

   Aaron Crane [15]provided a patch for fixing the Unicode Bug issue
with the
   range operator, to be used under unicode_strings.

Discussion

   David Mertens [16]asked (Changes to hints hash via keyword are clobbered
   by pragmatic module) about behavior he saw in the hints hash when
changing
   the internal hash structure from C. Zefram [17]summarized that changes to
   hints (whether from Pure-Perl or from C-level) should be done using %^H
   only. David proposed rectifying the documentation to clarify this point.

   David [18]seeks (Guidance on keyword and scope at end of for loop)
   additional guidance on the issue of the hints hash and keywords in a new
   thread.

   In a move to clean up the delimiters, Karl Williamson [19]proposes
   deprecating a delimiter which is part of a larger grapheme cluster
and not
   separate.
