It seems eventually we'll need to have "use v5.10.1" at the top
of every source file...  Maybe more Inline::C is coming, since
it's still got the "feel" of working in a scripting language,
mostly...

But maybe there's no point in worrying about Perl 5 being
dropped when Perl 8 comes along after 7 if the world ends this
year :P

parent.pm is leaner than base.pm, and Time::HiRes::stat is
more accurate, so take advantage of these Perl 5.10+-isms
since it's been over a year since we left 5.8 behind.

`~/.cache/public-inbox/inline-c' is supported, nowadays
for convenience, but Inline::C usage will remain opt-in.

Right now[1] the Perl upstream plan is to maintain 5 compatibility
in Perl 7 for at least 5 years[1], and perhaps drop it when Perl 8
comes along.  That said, distros may pick it and maintain 5 on their
own given the vast amounts of perfectly good legacy code out there.
