in thread Perl 6 feature that scares me the most:
People who follow my XS philosophy (write as little XS as possible, don't write "Perl in C", pretend you are using Inline::C not XS, have a Perl wrapper make the data C-friendly for the XS routine if needed) probably won't have to rewrite.
I just wanted to "gloat" since I think I get more "disrespect" for this philosophy than not. (:
Update: You can do more than wrappers, just deal with data in C-friendly structures in your C code; don't write C code to manipulate Perl data structures.
