Me too :) should we call it 'ithreads'?

I think 5.005_0x is a history now. At least I've noticed that more and 
more modules on CPAN no longer bother to support it. I've stopped trying 
to support it in my modules, where it relies on other modules which 
already don't support it.

Well, we can't yank, because we need special straps under 
mod_perl. such as 'plan $r, ...'. Though we could make a proper 
subclass of Test::More.
