Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 10

Dave Mitchell writes:

As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the December period.

Tinkered a bit more with overloading and tieing.

Over the last month I have averaged 5 hours per week, mainly due to Christmas. Over the 43 weeks of the grant so far, I have done 548 hours, averaging 12.7 hours per week. There are 352 hours left on the grant.
