In general, this looks great.  I'm glad that you're formulating the request to
Infra with care.  Infra is a valuable, limited resource.

Theoretically, we could test with every version of Perl from 5.8.3 forwards.
And as we add other host language bindings, every supported version of those,
too... and every possible OS... and every possible compiler on every OS...
You probably see where I'm going with this.  :)

I don't think it matters much which version of Perl we test on so long as it's
5.10.0 or greater.  Why not just use /usr/bin/perl so that nobody has to go
compiling a special Perl for us?

How about we just ask for one or the other to start with?
We can add more platforms once we get a feel for how the system works.
