Thanks largely to Jarkko's help, the second trial version of perl
v5.6.1 is now available.  (CPAN may need some time to catch up.)

If this release passes muster, I will update perldelta.pod and send
it to CPAN as v5.6.1.  Owing to the large number of patches, testing
is very very important.  So give it all you've got on all your
favourite platforms!

In particular, I'd like to see some purify (or similar) runs.  Patches
to documentation are also welcome.  Changes to *.[ch] are probably
out unless they are fixing serious bugs.
