	And sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar.
	I have ports installed that are Perl-based, or require Perl for
compilation; I am not a Perl programmer, much less a zealot; I did
not even know 5.10 was out.
	If there's a reason to have it - beyond having the latest
pretty thing - then let that case be made. (Allies gathered, the
cause advanced, ....)
	If there's a reason we don't have it yet, then let's hear about
that as well.
