Does it still make sense for Emacs to include two different Perl modes? Is it time to make cperl-mode the default, and to deprecate perl-mode?

But then there are those, like me, who tried `cperl-mode', found it too (shamlessly generalizing here) electric, dwimmy, flashy, whatever, and who ruefully returned to `perl-mode', not wanting to invest any time to de-electrify, de-dwim, de-flash `cperl-mode'.

Why not leave `perl-mode' in self-maintenance mode as long as users are happy with it?

I won't say "no" when we talk about giving `cperl-mode' preference in `auto-mode-alist', though.
