P.S. I'm sad to see that perlmonks is slowly becoming more like reddit, where problems are met with rancorousness instead of being discussed on a technical level.
I think the peevishness is a result of hype exhaustion on the topic of Perl6. I'm thrilled that a barrel-full of very bright people are working on the next generation of Perl, but I'll happily wait till it's cooked, and I'll continue to happily use the excellent Perl5 in the meantime. It's worked very well for me for the last 15 years, and it's still very much alive.
And, as the kids say, "It's all good."
