(who is "our" Abigail as well)
Alas, not any more, since some years now. - But it must be him; his main objection to Perl 6 is significant whitespace, and I'm with him on that one.
I personally believe that it was clear enough I was using "our" (in quotes, in fact) in the Pooh sense: indeed it used to be him, then he had an idiosyncrasy with the environment here, and voting and the like; he's definitely a clpmisc-kinda-guy. As you can clearly understand, he's rather radical in his choices and judgements - this whitespace thingie included. In fact Perl 6 is admittedly more whitespace sensitive than Perl 5, but... not that much! To even remotely mention Python (which has indentation as part of the syntax!) in these respects sounds mostly like a heresy to me!
Anyway tastes are tastes and Abigail is to say the least an extremely resourceful and skilled Perl hacker far above the top of my head, but as a general rule he found Perl 6's design to be too clean and neat, while he cherishes the "medieval-castle-like characteristics" of Perl 5. A matter we may discuss for hours without getting anything out of it if we have contrasting opinions...
