] apt-cache show perl | grep Version
Version: 5.8.8-12

I expect to be looking at Perl 5.10 soon, assuming it moves into
Debian/Ubuntu in the near future.  If they don't package it I am
probably too lazy to work out what it breaks myself.

Putting it into production or anything like that will take longer, to
ensure that 5.10 doesn't break more things than it fixes. :)
