Mail::SPF 2.003 with Perl 5.6 compatibility (was: libspf2 sample programs)

I think this belongs on the spf-devel list, so please follow-up there
instead of on spf-discuss.

Like Scott wrote, that seems to be the same problem as rt.cpan.org bug
#24130[1].

There was one other Perl 5.6 incompatibility, as I was able to find out
after having spent several hours setting up a Debian Woody chroot with Perl
5.6 and getting all the Mail::SPF build dependencies installed in the
required versions:

I managed to work around this Perl 5.6 oddity by saying "use utf8" in
several of Mail::SPF's modules. (I said it was odd, didn't I?)

I have released Mail::SPF 2.003, which should be fully compatible with Perl
5.6 as had been promised by earlier releases. I have uploaded it to CPAN,
however it may take a few more hours before it appears there for download.
Until then, you can get it here:

http://files.mehnle.net/software/mail-spf-perl/

Please let us know how it works out!

BTW, I guess the fact that no one noticed Mail::SPF's Perl 5.6 incom-
patibility up to now means that few people are still using Perl 5.6.
Upgrading to Perl 5.8 is recommendable for many reasons.
