Why? Because I would like to learn about the internals of Perl. And what better way to that than hacking the source?! :-)

    I guess for academic curiosity there is no better way, I just find it hard to imagine that there are more than a few dozen people on the planet capable of making any significant improvements to it.

    Personally I'd quite like to have a look at the source code to perl version 1, just to see where it all started in it's most simplistic form.

        That's true, but surely if He/She has what it takes to be at that level, His/Her talents would be better employed helping out with Perl 6?
        Maybe Logicus meant a hundred dozens. There's still 87 to be found!
        Some of those hundreds have only contributed documentation or patches to the bits of the core that are written in perl. Like I have. I'm in that list, but I'm not a perl-core hacker.
