Sounds good to me! I'm in no rush, and if this is moving forward I'm more
than happy to wait for it to land and rebase on top.

I didn't want to weigh in too heavily on the actual details of this patch
since I think the majority stakeholders are the folks who maintain the Perl
subsystem and those who build distribution packages. My work on Perl only
touches installation as a means to an end, and avarab@'s work does simplify
this for me.

Cheers, and thanks!
