Your version I consider a bugfix. Red Hat's dumbass backport to a version that 
can't handle it properly and where everybody expects to have to work around 
the damn bug anyway gets the quote marks.

Is any response required from you? This isn't in the real perl, only a 
specific mutant Red Hat one, so I figured it was their problem, not yours.

hates-software or possibly the as yet nonexistent sodding-distro-perl-maints 
list might be more appropriate, but I feel there's a fair degree of overlap to 
here provided you take as read the fact that I was bitching rather than 
attempting to do anything constructive - given they've already said the patch 
stays there doesn't seem much constructive left to do.
