This sounds pretty sane. Are there any reports of any modules breaking
within the 5 series? Is there any actual risk of breakage in moving
from 5.8 to 5.10 to 5.12? Looking at the announcements, I don't see
any potential issues, just additional features. Is there any reason to
keep the older perl versions?
