in reply to Why will v-strings be deprecated

But 'v10' also looks like a bareword. Consider this:
sub u11 {"u11"} sub v11 {"v11"} sub w11 {"w11"} print u11, v11, w11, v10; __END__ u11v11w11

And that includes the new line.

There are more things that cause more confusion than they solve peoples problems:

print 65.66; # prints '65.66' print 65.66.67; # prints 'ABC'
And while you can use print v10 to print a newline, you can't use it to print two newlines (as opposed to one string with two newlines):
print v10; # prints newline. print v10, v10; # "No comma allowed after filehandle"
