in thread utf8 and perl 5.6
I agree, but the project is running for nearly three years and I doubt they have a budget for this. Plus, a quick hack to get it working with 5.6 costs me considerably less time than to migrate the whole app to 5.8, and I'd rather spend time with my kids in the park than sell my precious time for some money. I'm lazy, after all...
Sometimes, the "perfect solution" isn't an option.
