The previous policy was "oh shit, our default version is not supported any
more, let's try and see how it goes with the version that will not be
supported after this year."

I've been bumping default Perl versions every six months for a long time so
that we could catch up.

Also, if everyone waits for the .1 release before using it, there will
never be a .1 release.
