As the "maintainer" of both perl-mode and (until a few days ago) cperl-mode,
I'll vote to keep perl-mode as the default, because cperl-mode's code is ugly.

I haven't used cperl-mode much, tho, but my impression was that it provides
more specialized support for Perl hackers, while Emacs users who use
a variety of languages may prefer perl-mode which is more standard.
