Your understanding is incomplete. Perl 6 may well have incompatible changes 
made to it, and some stuff is almost inevitably going away. (I'd bet 
everything marked "deprecated" since the first alphas of 5.000 would get 
the chop) What, of course, is still up in the air, since Larry's not 
actually had *time* to do anything on it yet...
