I like this idea.  Create every Perl Delta file from now on using its final name 
inclusive of version number, and have the generic "perldelta" be a concise index 
of sorts that mainly points to the numbered file for the latest version.  This 
index can also have a brief explanation of how to read the other files and which 
ones are most relevant. -- Darren Duncan
