The rhetorical question that I pose to you is: what makes it less than desireable for you? I'm sure that there were those who said the same during the Perl4 -> Perl5 migration; arguments that we see today as either crusty or silly. I'll admit that I'm not up on Perl6 at all. I see no reason to learn a language that won't see the light of day for a couple of years. Heck, I don't even know that the specification is done. So part of this question is asked in ignorance. What kind of code that you have written today breaks tomorrow?
