Done: libhtml-parser-perl, libterm-readline-gnu-perl, sdlperl,
libapt-pkg-perl (i386 build), frozen-bubble (upload in progress)
I think that's enough to let me install perl 5.8 outside the chroot on
my laptop.. Oh, and frozen-bubble works great. :-)
I will be happy to NMU any perl XS modules anyone asks me to, though
testing would be minimal for most. I hope we can get all the important
packages done this week.
