The Changes for this release are:

        - couldn't be found due to wrong naming of the file
          (reported by Fulko Hew).
        - handle lone \015's properly in AE::Handle's default line read
          (reported by various people).
        - untaint ip addresses found in /etc/hosts (patch by José Micó).
        - the memleak fix in 7.03 caused resolving via /etc/hosts to always
          fail on first use (reported and testcase by Andrew Whatson).
        - expose AnyEvent::Log::format_time, and allow users to redefine it.
        - expose AnyEvent::Log::default_format, and allow redefinition.
        - expose AnyEvent::Log::fatal_exit, to allow redefinition.

        - use a (hopefully) more future-proof method to emulate common::sense.
        - upgrade to UTS-46:6.2.0.
