We fixed the things that bother you in Perl 5.

(It's not universally true, if you're the type of person who thinks that prefix sigils are irredeemably ugly, but I don't care about those people and so can you.)

    So true. More specifically, we are fixing the things that can't be fixed without breaking backwards compatibility.

    And since we found that quite a few things need fixing, a strong emphasis is on making things much more flexible, thus allowing easier fixes in future.
