Perl 6 definitely missed Larry's first kick.

Don't get me wrong Audrey, Jonathan, Stephan, Patrick are all great folks but they are not Larry. All of their contributions are great, but you need some one like Larry to give first initial push(First implementation of a project) to a project like Perl 6.

Agreed Perl 6 is a rather more ambitious project. But it took around 7 years for Larry to get from Perl 1 to 5. And community is struggling for more than a decade now in regards to Perl 6.

Communities are so much about their initial contributor. Community rewrites just don't happen.
