As for "wrong path", it might be a key indicator that almost every person with a significant CPAN presence is heavily in favor of Perl6 and the way it's being developed. This also includes every single person who's ever done any work with the Perl5 source (save one, that I'm aware of).
For the record, I'm not "heavily in favor of Perl6", at least not in the sense that I favor anything Perl6 over Perl5. Thus, I don't care about the way it's being developed, as long as it doesn't interfere with anything I want. I don't have a "significant" CPAN presence maybe.
