Remember, one of the goals of Perl 6 is to be able to run 95% of the
Perl 5 programs already out there. How that's going to happen I'm not
sure, but having a parrot compiler for Perl 5 will probably be part of

The answer, however, is that you don't have to give up your Perl 5
interpreter to use Perl 6. Let your Perl 5 binary run your Perl 5 stuff
and let your Perl 6 interpreter take care of Perl 6.

Perl 5.10.0 was released in December,  and the perl5porters is already
working on Perl 5.12. There's no immediate danger of Perl 5 stagnation
or disappearance.
