Learn how to program properly, and forget about perl2exe!
As long as this is the attitude of the Perl community, Perl will never be used for enterprise application development. I see frequent discussions asking for examples of commercial apps, large apps, and graphical apps. Granted, there are a couple examples out there but they are mostly low-profile and by most standards unsuccessful.
What Perl needs to take it to the next level is a good native compiler. I understand why people are against this, but I believe through the increased use and associated publicity of Perl it would in fact help the oss movement more than it would hurt it.
There are plenty of good reasons for native compilation, pretending that the only reason is to hide low-quality code is very ignorant. I'm still not sure this was your point though, so I apologize if I misinterpreted.
Then again, you could argue Perl has found its place already and shouldn't try to expand beyond its role. I personally think world domination is a much better goal ;-).
