Actually, I feel less in favour of Perl6 than Perl5.10 (or now Perl5.12), because Perl5 has a proven track record and delivers.
I pretty much don't care for Perl6 and the well-trodden blind alleys it and it's conjoined twin Parrot meander along. I don't feel comfortable about how TPF and Perl6 spend the money on themselves, but then again, I don't get the feeling that Perl5 attracts proposals for money either, so the Perl6-spending doesn't detract from potential Perl5-spending. I don't care enough to join the political fray just to right some perceived wrongs though.
