oppinion on Perl6's production-readiness
Note that this is not what's been discussed in the reddit thread (but rather if it's practical).
Anyway, it's not yet production ready, for most values of "production" that you can come up with.
I do occasionally solve problems in Perl 6 where it's much better suited than Perl 5, but usually when I want something stable that will still work in 2 years without any maintenance, I use Perl 5.
Rakudo is now in need of early adopters to shake out bugs, and to tell the developers which areas need the most work to become "production ready" (which can mean a whole lot of different things depending on othe use case).
