Oh shit, yes. I knew we forgot some important issue. That was it.  Thanks for
the hint. But we should release ePerl 2.2.15 with those fixes and then
incorporate back this as the WML pass 3, of course. Hmmm... I hope I find some
time to incorporate the patches in my ePerl-queue the next time. 

BTW, is someone interested in maintaining ePerl? I ask because the ePerl
situation is mostly the same as it was for WML until Denis has overtaken the
project. I've actually no time for ePerl these months and the next months but
a lot of patches are already in the queue and the project really needs a
maintainer.  When someone is interested, please jump up.
