in thread Perl 5 -> 6 do's and don'ts?

We would already have deprecated 4-arg select if we had anything decent to replace it with. Filehandles aren't well represented by small integers in Perl. Indeed, some filehandles map to more than one file descriptor underneath. Filehandles (and all other event-producing entities) need to be tied together with a consistent event-handling model.
