Forwarding to the list as Dave's reply to me off-list may be worth
considering in terms of how to move forward with this perl5 stuff.

Thanks for thinking of this.  When I checked, the variant that was
installed reports back as 5.8.9.

Do you think that this should be raised as some sort of bug?  I mean,
I would never have thought that something labeled "perl5
@5.12.3_1+perl5_8" was actually Perl 5.8.9 unless someone suggested
