I'll probably have time to work through this before then. But in case I don't,
and I just wait to update stow until you release the new Perl version, is there
any disadvantage to that aside from the short time when stow won't work with the
latest Perl? And the risk of a further delay due to any build problems?

Thanks,
Andrew
