It's like a relationship. Ruby and, to some extent, PHP are in the we just met and isn't it just phenomenal? infatuation stage. She always wears lingerie to bed, doesn't snore (that you've heard, anyway), and even if she gets sick, it's kind of cute. On the other hand, Perl is in the we've been married 20 years real love stage. You've met her mother and have made a grudging peace with her and you know all-too-well that she has bodily functions but, really, it's all good. You fit so well, you finish each others' sentences. Sure, the fires aren't as white-hot as they were in the beginning but you know that that isn't sustainable. By this point, you know that she's got what it takes to get you out of real trouble. She's got real staying power.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I don't see why Perl needs to be exciting any more than C does. They do the job with beauty and elegance. That's really what I want from a programming language.
