I agree that there are hardcore Perl people, but most of people and company out there are not waiting for Perl 6, as a matter of fact, they are moving away from Perl (I don't want to argue how many major web site are running on Perl, I don't care, that's legacy). Perl 6 won't do anything more for them than other languages do.
You won't get enough people and attention to get Perl 6 as popular as Perl did before.
