Suggested patches

   John Lightsey provided a patch in [41]Perl #130635 to fix a stack
overflow
   problem in [42]Storable.

Discussion

   Craig Berry [43]raised (test randomization (Re: slowness of
   ext/XS-APItest/t/handy.t,utf8.t)) into discussion the topic of
   randomization and determinism in tests.

   Jim Keenen [44]raised the problem of [45]Scalar-List-Util being out of
   sync and suggests

   Dave Mitchell [46]asked about the status of [47]ExtUtils::Constant.

   Hugo van der Sanden [48]suggests optimizing the run loop a tad and
   provided a branch with the patch for review: hv/runloop.

   In an interesting thread, Yves Orton [49]asked: Should we consider locked
