Let me reconstruct the quote you doctored:
Nothing from the Perl 6 project can, at the moment, be considered a worthy replacement for Perl 5 at every level. At individual levels (for example expressiveness, or concurrency (on the JVM backend at least)), Perl 6 and its current main implementation, Rakudo, are actually superior to Perl 5. There is still much work to do (much more than anybody imagined when the Perl 6 efforted started), but I'm still hopeful.
Just like in Perl, context in English is quite important.

    I expect a Perl programmer to understand parenthesis. But I also expect a perl-6 marketer like moritz to make wild claims and then immediately back off them when confronted with facts.
