Re: Perl 5.16 and Beyond.
Message ID:
I agree with all the backward compatibility *goals*, but I think redefining
"v5.x" to mean "exactly v5.x" instead of "equal or greater than v5.x" is a
bit contrary to that aim.

Since exact version semantic are a new feature of the core awe could
preserve backward compatibility by having some new syntax like "use =v5.18".
Instead of what it's always meant (i.e. ">=v5.18").
