Backwards compatibility?

Core modules need not to be written in a backaward compatible way in terms of operators they use. The core must be backward compatible wrt third party modules and existing code bases outside of itself.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    I'd say most core modules are older than the // operator.
