I still don't grasp what the issue is.

Perl's major release number is locked to 5 because of Perl6. Maybe that's what it is all about.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    Maybe they should do what SunOS/Solaris did and drop the first number. Next major release number would be 26 (e.g.). :-)
