Maybe it is time to bite the bullet and finally decide we should retire
5.005_03 even on 4.x. The ports for 5.6.1 and 5.8.0 have been there for
years, are able to replace the ancient perl we have w/o problem and far too
many modules requires at least 5.6.x nowadays anyway.

It is close to impossible to remove Perl from 4.x but we should push people
to move away from it.
