Taint mode

At the last Bugzilla meeting, we discussed turning off taint mode, as
it's a performance hit, keeps breaking 3rd party modules and provides
marginal value now that we use placeholders properly and template
escaping. It also means we could use /usr/bin/env in the #! line, which
is advantageous for people whose Perl is in a non-standard place.

Someone said a bug had been opened: is that right?
