If by "will Perl5 modules be compatible" you mean "is that the plan?" then yes, the plan is that you'll be able to use most perl 5 modules (including ones that use XS) via an embedded libperl on platforms where that works and you'll be able to use most pure perl 5 modules otherwise via the P6 project called "v5".

For a little more detail about these plans see the bit about "Mixing P6 and ..." in this post.

    The plan was for 5.8 to be the final release of Perl, so why would anyone care what the plan is?

    Why can't you be honest, Ralphie-boy? "The plan" is for your weird little marketdroid posts to keep promising that "something" is almost certainly "just around the corner", hoping that people forget that you pull this stunt year after year after year.
