No, it just took my mind that switching to the 5.14,
is not mandatory so bumping this ports will be
pointless to all users (and they are most of users)
who decide to stay with old perl - they just end up
with unneeded superfluous rebuilds. And those who
want to be on the edge with perl should follow
UPDATING entry (rebuild all that depends on perl)
or resolve such issues manually.
But they surely should be bumped when ports tree will
be switched to 5.14 as a main perl version.
