why perl 5.8 won't be in testing for a while



This is a probably incomplete list of things that are contributing to
keeping perl 5.8 out of testing. Probably incomplete because I didn't
look at RC bugs of all packages that need to go into testing at the same
time as perl 5.8, and I probably missed some stuff in the tedium of
researching this list.
