perl5.8.1-RC2 on the laptop and started to turn a bandaid I'd made for PadWalker into a proper fix.
After much study of the newly refactored
pad.[ch] code I'm starting
to settle on the notion that PadWalker is relying on bugs which no
longer exist. There's probably a very small fix to be made, mostly in
documentation explaining the change in behaviour, I just have to spend
a little more time uncovering it.
