Whoa.  It's not "Perl 6".  The numbering convention changed, and if you
can buy that then it's only a .1 change.  It's got a LONG changelog for a
.1 change, at least in my book.

What exactly is the point of all this bitching?  Do you want to rewrite
the past?  Are you volunteering to make sure 5.7 is totally awesome?
