5.16.0, perlport, corelist, and pseudo-blockers

So, hey, I just built this:

This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 0 (v5.16.0 (v5.15.9-270-g03b5aaf))
built for darwin-2level
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

Woo!

I know we have some smoke reports to deal with and some other building issues
to consider, but I'm trying to get the boring stuff done on a branch to
facilitate things getting done at all.

Here are two things about which I'd like input:

(1) What's up with perlport's "Supported Versions"?

It has two "Supported Versions" sections. One is labeled 5.12, the other 5.8.
Neither is labeled 5.14.

My plan is to delete the 5.8 one and update the 5.12 one to read "5.16" with
the needed changes, if any.

(2) Sneaking in C<corelist --diff X Y>

A massivehuge "Updated Modules" section is a drag to read. Nobody is going to.
It should be a list of things that changed that we know are of note. i.e.,
"Selected Module Updates." Then we can say "for a complete set of changes,
consult corelist."

...but corelist doesn't let you say "what changed from 5.14.2 to 5.16.0?"

My commit e9eb411, available at rjbs/corelist-diff, adds this:

corelist --diff 5.14.2 5.16.0

It's ripped off of the corelist-diff script in ./Porting.
