The stickler in me wants to say "No! We must find someone to update the
pure perl client!" - but also I can't think of many compelling reasons.

Whackjob portability? Easier modifications? Questions like the unicode
thread that I'm dutifully ignoring?

I know a lot of folks in the PHP arena who've fallen back to pure-php
clients because of quirky issues with the C libs. This is quite common

It probably doesn't need binary protocol support, but everything else is
useful. I hope someone has a better argument over keeping it up to date
than I have.
