Except that perl-scripts don't care about the architecture dependent
directories. They either require or include and perl takes care of
things for them. Really, if we get lots of bug-reports, it won't be
because the arch directory changed.
Really, this release fixes lots of bugs that have been a problem. This
version will turn the roar about h2ph down. That's been a thorn in my
side since I got this package.

Well, most of that is from other packages which will have to be rebuilt
with the new arch-dir...
I'll also be able to remove the old *.ph files as well. I just don't
want to remove files from packages that haven't upgraded to the new
arch-dir. Local stuff won't be affected. It goes in /usr/local.
