Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 11

Dave Mitchell writes:

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

Tinkered a bit more with overloading and tieing, and worked on the security issues associated with user-defined \p{} properties.

Over the last month I have averaged 10 hours per week. Over the 47 weeks of the grant (to 31/Jan/11), I have done 585 hours, averaging 12.4 hours per week. There are 315 hours left on the grant.

Report for period 2011/01/01 to 2011/01/31 inclusive
