  • If we called 5.8.0 "Perl 2002" maybe more people would upgrade.

    I really like this idea. I'm adding this second sentence so it doesn't trip your one-sentence rule for me; I really do like this idea.

  • Perl 5.10 is going to really bugger the sortability then, cos it's going to go 5.005, 5.10, 5.6, 5.8. Oops!

    • I didn't say *how* it sorts, just that it sorts "properly". Meaning works within the sorting rules of the system. 5.10.0 is following the perl version sorting rules.
  • Assume anything outside of that and all bets are off. This is why I'm considering switching to plain integers.

    It worked for Subversion!

    I typically already do that. I also tend to start that integer at "3". It makes so much stuff easier.
