I think it is a bit too late for the change to appear on the demo CD. 
Not even 100% sure if we will get the CD out on time in its current state.

The system installed by the CD will be using 
http://pkg.openindiana.org/dev repository by default anyway. We 
obviously can update it at a later time with all the perl584 changes.
