I agree with you in theory, but the only problem I see here is that 
there are at least two shops I know of that still use 5.6.1.  Worse, 
they use patched versions of 5.6.1, so that is the main reason keeping 
them from upgrading.

However, I think that it is reasonable to stop supporting perl 5.6.1. 
If shops like that are going to upgrade mod_perl and not expect to 
upgrade 5.6.1 to 5.6.2, the patch route is always available.
