True, but I've just recently been dumbfounded when a student in a
course we were running showed up with a Mac OSX Jaguar laptop (and was
quite happy with it).
In other words, not everyone out there upgrades the OS eagerly.
I agree it's reasonable not to put a lot of energy into fixing bugs
that only show up under Perl prior to 5.8.x. But if BioPerl refuses to
even work (or spit out ugly warnings) under 5.6, isn't that a bit too
much of forcing upgrades on people who may not necessarily need it?
