This is good, but we need more in this file about:
On 5-CURRENT after the 5.2-RELEASE split, the default Perl version
has been updated from 5.6.1 to 5.8.2.
What's the recipe for handling this?
'pkg_add -r <something_that_depends_on_perl>' will hose a 5.2-CURRENT
system that started out life as a 5.1-CURRENT system or older. Because
perl 5.8 will be installed, splatting on top of the already installed
perl 5.6. portupgrade doesn't know that perl 5.8 is a newer version of
perl; so it won't upgrade an installed perl 5.6 to 5.8 and fix all the
dependencies of already installed ports.
