This sounds to me like a good idea, especially if we implement some of the
other radical changes, such as implicit 'use strict' or major changes to
builtins.  Personally I'd have it be 'use perl5' (it's the difference
between making a new pragma and defining a third meaning for require [or
redefining its current meaning]) but that's a minor detail.  Unfortunately,
it may be too late.  Oh well...
