MAD currently still lives in the Perl core, but I guess it has a severe case of bitrot, because nobody seems to work on it, and Larry seems to have lost interest.

Also see on p5p. Most likely it'll get removed in the next release cycle unless somebody works on it.

    I do not believe Larry has lost interest. He's just a busy guy, mostly focused on helping get Perl 6 to 6.0.0, writing his new Perl 6 book, and so on. Here's the most recent exchange I'm aware of with Larry Wall about MAD. Also, as noted in the p5p email exchange Reini linked, "we've been asked by Larry not to actually purge them from the source".
