Sounds quite well reasoned to me. Is this something that makes
sense to encourage for 5-to-6 migrations of Perl code as well?
In theory, I don't think it matters as much for P6: if you want to use
the old API, just keep using the P5 modules with your P6 code. My
understanding is that Python 3's backwards-incompatibility means
you'll need to use all Py3 stuff together.
