bug#10688: The default mode for Perl should be cperl-mode instead of perl-mode

The reason I did not make cperl mode the default, years ago, was that some
users preferred the older perl mode. They thought cperl had some drawbacks.
And the author of cperl mode was unwilling to fix them.
I don't recall what those drawbacks were -- I never used Perl -- and I
don't know if this is still true.
