Actually as the Perl porters stand now it seems that use 5.12 will already 
imply use strict.

Oh and while officially 5.005 is not deprecated now that the 
module installation toolchain only supports 5.6 it is effectively
*really hard* to use 5.005 with CPAN.

Of course those who stick with 5.005 probably don't want the greatest
and bravest of CPAN anyway.
