Re: Hash seed breaks 5.8.1 binary API; fix suggested

I think it's feasible to do this in a semi-automated way for 5.8.0 and
5.8.1 in the short term.  A human builds 5.8.0 and 5.8.1 on a given
machine, and has a script to do the process you describe for just those
two versions.

The question I have is, what list of modules should we attempt to build?
Is there a nice list in descending order by download frequency?  Do the
CPAN people keep those stats?
