That assumes it's possible to know with sufficient certainty which pieces of 
syntax are sufficiently stable to mark as such.  It's not *impossible*, and I 
encourage anyone willing to work on it to do so, but it seems like a large 

I wouldn't have predicted that =$fh would become $fh.lines.

Manifest version number dependencies are an eventual necessity for Perl 6 (and 
hopefully Perl 5); moving to that model sooner rather than later could reduce 
a lot of pain.  That seems like a smaller task which will pay off much more 
over time.
