Does that mean there is a chance we might see the patch back-ported to older perls, e.g. 5.8 and 5.10 ?
No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember, you've probably only seen the tip of them. [1]

    No. There is no maintainer for 5.8 or 5.10, so it's highly unlikely. The only Perl version in active maintenance is 5.12. I remember Zefram musing about doing a maintenance release of 5.10 (that would be 5.10.3), but I also remember the discussion mostly leaning towards build failures and not doing real work there.

    Update: Found the p5p post about doing a 5.10.2 and possibly 5.10.3. I guess you could lobby Zefram for including that patch, but there is little guarantee for anything.
