My 2 to this discussion:

The most interesting parts of the Perl6 project were:

  • a JIT compiler tuning the execution nearer to C-speed
  • an orthogonal redesign allowing much easier language extensions in the future, while Perl5 is stuck in a byzantine labyrinth of patches and patches of patches.
