The other major challenge is "why Perl 6?"
People use Perl because it was available much earlier than the more correct stuffs like Python and Ruby. So it is bad, but what can you do? you have no choice.
Now Perl 6 might be right, but it is no better than Python etc., plus it is not the first coming... so why Perl 6?
This will be the exact reason why Perl 6 has failed before it is born.
