Legacy Perl $pkg'var should die

Perl used to use $pkg'var instead of the modern $pkg::var. This is still in Perl 5. It's gotta go.
Damian worried that this would mean Klingon.pm would no longer be portable to Perl 6. He failed to convince other people on the list that this was actually a bad thing. ;-) (kidding!!)
Camel-3 p. 60 reminded me of this.
