TBH, I’d rather switch to 5.16 while 5.18 matures in MacPorts ...
So is anyone against moving from 5.12 to 5.16 as the default? Should we make changes to all the relevant ports at once?

It will require more work to add it too because now all p5-* ports will need to add a p5.18 subport. A ticket for that seems like a no brainer at this point however.
