My Perl wishes:
- that snazzy open-source apps like Muine are written in Perl, rather than C# and Python
- that we have a heavily used web framework (totally agree with chromatic that Catalyst is frightening)
- that more new development occurs in Perl rather than in C#, Java, Ruby, Python...
- that Perl 6 will somehow emerge from the ashes like Firefox did from the Mozilla code base!?
To those who will say, "write it yourself!" with regards to Perlish versions of Muine and Ruby on Rails -- I'm not a professional programmer, or even a unprofessional one. I'm just a scientist and hobbyist who finds Perl occasionally useful. The point is, I would find Perl far more useful if Perl and CPAN received the sort loving care that would ensue if it were more popularly used for new applications, i.e. if Perl were growing rather than merely "sustaining".
