Subject $0 and perl change 26779
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2006 19:07:47 GMT
Perl change 26779[1] has made it into blead. Basically, it's now possible
to have perl_parse() _not_ do anything with $0 by setting PL_origalen = 1;

This used to cause us some trouble, so we might want to do something about it.
Of course, we will still be stuck with older Perl's behaviour, but it might
be worth the trouble to make use of this 'feature' for newer Perls.
