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.

Are you using embedded perl applications?
