As for "wrong path", it might be a key indicator that almost every person with a significant CPAN presence is heavily in favor of Perl6 and the way it's being developed. This also includes every single person who's ever done any work with the Perl5 source (save one, that I'm aware of).
That's a very strong claim. Also wrong. For a very prominent and vocal exception see Abigail. For another person with qualms, see Adam Kennedy. If you follow that link you will see comments from brian d. foy indicating that he has qualms as well. None of those are exceptions that you really want to ignore. Nor, based on a number of conversations that I have, would I say that they are particularly uncommon.

Now you're free to disagree with these people. Many do. But it is wrong to claim that they do not exist.

Incidentally in an unrelated note, should I resign myself to never getting the apology I requested some time ago?

    [Lady_Aleena]: 1nickt, I wouldn't, but I'm not normal.
    LanX aggrees, LA isn't normal ;-P
    [Lady_Aleena]: LanX, thanks bunches.
    [Lady_Aleena]: Rigth now I'm ranting in my head about an old subject.
    [1nickt]: Hm, that is, how to prevent Perl from turning 1.0 into 1? I feel sure this must be an faq, but am reading perlnum and not finding the answer ...
    [Lady_Aleena]: 1nickt, why does it matter in this case?
    [1nickt]: Hm, perhaps this? "Operators which expect an integer force the argument into the integer format."
    [1nickt]: Can this be? So print
    [1nickt]: ... "expects an integer" ?
