The number I always hear is '18 months' when anyone talks about when it will arrive.

Which reminds me of this old quote: "In a ten year period, we can have an superb programming language. Except we can't control when the ten year period will begin."

The corollary is that if there's no CGI.pm for Perl 6, there will be no Perl 6 CGIs.

Plenty of people will probably keep hand-parsing CGI params even after they're using Perl6. Or maybe not. I suspect that most hand-parsed implementations are actually copy-and-pasted from whatever source the author orginally learned CGI programming from. They have nearly zero understanding of the line-noise regular expressions that go into even a relatively simple CGI param parser. That being the case, these code snippets are very likely to completely break under Perl6, and they won't know how to fix them. Which makes it an excelent point to show them how to do it properly. Either that, or they'll give up and go back to Perl5.
