OK, that's not good. But I'm not quite sure what to do about it.

Perl 5.10.1 is a little over six years old. Nobody else has complained
(yet) about this problem. So it might be best to "fix" this with a
minimum version added to the Changes file.

Or maybe we need to revert the patch.

So I'm far from a Perl expert, so I have no clue what the minimum version
would be if we were to say "5.10.1 is too old." I don't suppose anybody
out there knows?
