Sounds reasonable to not have new requirements between 0.7.0 and 0.7.1.

How about adding a paragraph to the installation document, saying:
[[
     For better performance, you may enable the template cache  
mechanism by removing the # character before the file_cache  
parameter. Note however that this options requires you to run a more  
recent version of perl (5.8) than the validator usually requires (5.6  
and above).
]]

Also as you noted, 0.8 could quite reasonably require perl 5.8. As  
far as I can tell, it was available on activeperl since late 2002,  
and on the mac since 10.3.

We are in validator.conf, in a context of configuration options. So I  
suggest simply <Templates>...</Templates>

ok with me. Does anyone know whether we're going to need apache2 +  
mod_perl2 or if 0.8 will run on 1.3+mod_perl?
