Most people don't adopt .0 releases.  5.6.1 was just released.  Most of us
who maintain large software deployments have a lag time of *at least* six
months for picking up a new release of software.

I know you like preaching doom and gloom, David, but you're several
parsecs displaced from reality here.  (And Perl 5.6.0 has been in Debian
testing for a while, for that matter.)
