I have another question similar to this one:

If we drop perl-5.004, is there a good reason why we do need to rename
an essential package? (from perl-base to perl-5.005-base).

I understand this was made to be able to install several releases of
perl at the same time, but: Is this really worthy? Why do we need several
releases of perl? The latest and the greatest should work with every app.
