As we all know, perl6 is supposed to be rewrite of perl by community, and the rewrite of the community itself (if I understand this correctly...: ).
" I want Perl 6 to be the community's rewrite of Perl and of the community."

What exactly is wrong with current perl community that it needs a rewrite?
I think current perl community changed alot since the times when people used to equal perl with CGI, pascal used to be big, now there's both java and C# to lure some programmers away from perl...OTOH perl entered GUI space with Gtk2 bindings in a big way(I'm still hugely surprised how easy it is to build apps with Gtk2::GladeXML), not to mention Frozen-Bubble halo ...
What do you think perl community needs, how would you improve it?
