Please post them here.

What makes you think so?  Obviously someone else than Ilya must have caused
the changes between Ilya's version and Emacs's and it's quite likely
he/she's reading this mailing-list.

Not that big, really.

There was a disagreement about what the code should look like (I don't know
the specifics but my understanding is that Richard wanted some changes that
Ilya rejected), so his version and the Emacs version are not the same.
I do send him every patch I apply to Emacs's cperl-mode.el.
