I'd just like to point out that I feel a lot better about the imminent doom that is Perl 6 after seeing Autrijus
talk at Boston.PM. With v6 you can start using some of the good bits of Perl 6, but aren't yet forced to adopt all the nastiness too ;-) ... although they are working on it.
As for newbies, I too, do not see how P6 is going to be "beeter". Indeed, for sometime it will probably be worse until everyone gets used to having the rug yanked out form underneath them.
UPDATE: By everyone, I mean the experienced perl hacks whom would help the newbies.
