        Ah.  5.00502, which seems odd.  I thought 03.

        Mostly because I got sick of rewriting several of my programs
after every new perl version change.  Certain functions kept library
hopping, and that quickly got annoying.  Then I converted to Python,
and stopped caring. :)

        But I guess we should get to 5.8.0 soon.
