Personally, I think that all the stuff in cpan/Locale-Codes/internal should
also not be included in core perl. Sullivan, is it correct that none of that
should ever be *run* in core? If so, my vote is to remove it from there.
Others will disagree.
And most importantly, they probably shouldn't get installed. They're
not installed when installing from CPAN, right ? so we should either
remove them from the core, or patch installperl to avoid installing
them.
Which is less maintenance? Tracking the slowly changing per-distro bundling
exclusions in Porting/Maintainers.pl, or tracking the per-distro install
exclusions in installperl?

Frankly, I'll be happy to make it as close to be zero work for you guys
either way. I'm perfectly willing to prepare patches every time I
release a new Locale-Codes and submit it. I can either do the full
distro, or the subset of files which are actually necessary
(Makefile.PL, the modules, the tests). Hopefully I've learned enough of
the process this time that future patches should go in without requiring
20+ messages :-).

If that meets with your approval, I'll be happy to do so. I would
probably appreciate someone 'watching over my shoulder' the first time
or two since this is all still pretty new to me, but I see no reason
that you guys should be required to maintain Locale-Codes core,
especially since it really should require regular updates.
