The current Perl release is 5.8.8, which shipped with etch.
In the next 24 months I would expect at least one 5.8.x release, which
should be a non-event excepting the possibility of arch-specific build
There is a possibility that 5.10 may surface in the interval, which
would require a staged transition for binary Perl modules similar to
what was done for 5.8.
