Update for p5-CGI-Simple

Greetings everyone,

Here is a patch for an update to p5-CGI-Simple to version 1.113 which resolves the header injection vulnerabilities. It adds a dependency to p5-IO-stringy, which should IMO be there since 1.112 (according to the ChangeLog). Here's the list of changes (taken from the official Changes file):

1.113 2010-12-27

      - (thanks to Yamada Masahiro) randomise multipart boundary string

      - Numerous changes from Mark Stosberg:

        Port max-age support from, to improve compatibility and

        Correct header comment in cookie.t

        It claims that is a simple copy/paste/modify from's test
        by the same name, but this has not been true for some time--
        CGI::Simple added

        httponly tests that lacks, for example.

        Sync cookie references with add reference to the
        newer RFC 2695

        "Interface to browse cookies" looks like it was typo for
        "browser". HTTP is more precise.

        Fix awkward "" language. It looks like it probably
        originated from the form. "CGI::Simple" is used instead.

        Best Practice: eliminate indirect object notation from new(),
        parse() and fetch() calls

        Security: Fix handling of embedded malicious newlines in header
          values This is a direct port of the same security fix that

        Security: use a random MIME boundary by default in
          multipart_init(). This is a direct port of the same issue
          which was addressed in, preventing some kinds of
          potential header injection attacks.

        Port from Fix multi-line header parsing.
          This fix is covered by the tests in t/header.t added in
          the previous patch. If you run those tests without this
          patch, you'll see how the headers would be malformed
          without this fix.

        Port CRLF injection prevention from

        Optimize Vars(): Don't build %hash if we aren't going to use it.

        Micro-optimization to Vars(): Don't call "tie" unless we need to.

      - Numerous changes from K. Berov:

        Added "+" to the mime character class.

        Added tests for C<$mime = $q->upload_info( $filename, 'mime' );>

        Fixed wrong match for mimetypes. Example: matched only
        'application/vnd' instead of 'application/'.

        Added "\." to the mime character class

And here is the patch:
