But - much of perl's power lies in the great array of modules that are constantly being developed. The documentation of these
varies from wonderful to woeful.

True, but I am unhappy with the standard documentation, not the
documentation for other modules. There's no way to force authors of modules
to write documentation (except for maybe not putting them into CPAN unless
they are accompanied by documentation, but I don't think this would be a good thing), and
I'm not too worried about that, but I think that the basic core of the language should
be well documented.
