	I am not sure where you are headed with this statement.  AFAIK,
no tentative freeze date has been set.   Also, the problem of how to
introduce the new package has been debated since before the slink freeze.
It is apparantly a difficult problem.  I imagine that, if the problem is
solved before the freeze, perl 5.005 will be installed.
