Can suid bit on execution 
can be removed from /usr/bin/suidperl 
by default?.
Not that many people use /usr/bin/suidperl anyway
and those who use it can do chmod u+s manually.
Securities issues 
(like those in SUSE http://lwn.net/daily/suse-perl.php3 )
will not be an issue any more.

Removing the setuid bit would break things in a non-obvious way.  It will be
broken into a subpackage and not installed by default in future releases.
