I just released Net::Patricia-1.17_03 last week, and had to draw the
line at Perl 5.010 (but that has more to do with the fact that
version.pm was missing from Perl 5.009)...
But yeah, I wouldn't count on things to run with a Perl any older than 5.10.
5.10 also changed the way that IO::Handles are implemented, the internal
buffering model, etc... a lot of stuff had to be rewritten for 5.10.
Which means that backporting fixes is a major hassle.
