I've pushed a few more changes, stopping when my eyes started to glaze 
over reading the thing.

I believe the section on documentation changes needs extensive changes. 
The stuff in there is mostly useless.  "Removed redundand dSP from an 
example" may be true, but its not really useful.  And specifying these 
would lead a reader to think that the section really is extremely 
detailed and accurate, whereas, what is in it is kind of random.  The 
rewrite of the first part of perlre and removal of the final part were 
not mentioned at all, and are far more important than most of what is in 
there.  If we are going to have this section, the various pod files 
should be examined for commits that occurred in this release.  I would 
go to the history links like
