I hope so, but since we're in code freeze it's the pumpking's prerogative as to when to merge this into blead and/or when to generate a perl-5.25.12.

But I would also like to ask:  Do we have a plan for when, subsequent to perl-5.26.0, we have CPAN.pm -- and other CPAN installers -- revert to PERL_USE_UNSAFE_INC=0?

Thank you very much.
