in thread Ensuring forward compatibility

I think all that's been promised is that "Perl should stay Perl", as A1 put it. This obviously means that most of the things that make up Perl will stay because otherwise it would no longer be Perl. However, what I meant is that the designers are not trying hard to keep things for the sake of backward compatibility only.
