	_Many_ ports depend on perl, and each must be tested (and
if broken hopefully fixed) before such an ungrade happens.  I
believe the recent jump from 5.8.8 to 5.8.9 took weeks of
behind-the-scenes work.  Now imagine what moving to 5.10 will likely
involve ....
	Experienced help is always appreciated, and I commend the
20090113 entry of ports/UPDATING as having a contact point.
