Suggested Patches

   Jim Keenen [17]provided a patch for [18]Perl #132008 ([19]Term::ReadLine
   generates empty &STDERR files).

   Jim also provided a patch for [20]Perl #120174 (Debugger command
   regression: Now requires more spaces).

   Sullivan Beck [21]provided to update [22]Locale-Codes from 3.52 to 3.54.

Discussions

   Karl Willamson [23]covers the facility Perl has for automatically and
   invisibly substituting reentrant library functions when the non-reentrant
   one is called. He suggests that we allow module authors to #define
   PERL_REENTR to gain access to this feature.
