About a zillion lines of software expect it to be called "perl".

And perl6 has been imminent for ... some time.  FreeBSD shows 5394 ports
listed in the "perl5" category, approximately a dozen of which reference
perl6 in their names.

In other words, I'll believe it when I see it :-)  There's an awful lot
of intertia behind perl5.
