... calling Perl 6 "production ready"...
If you call a tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?
It doesn't matter what you call Perl 6. The fact of it is that, for the foreseeable future, deploying a Perl 6 application will require you to follow the Perl 6 development process pretty closely. Sure, you can get a lot done with the state of either of the two leading implementations—if you're willing to invest the time in an immature product. Sure, there's a renewed commitment to improving the maturity of Rakudo at least.
Those are all well and good, but a tail is still a tail and not a leg.
