When you say ... “please don’t post if you are not currently interested in contributing to Perl 6,” I think that you found for yourself the reason why this thread is (and is likely to remain) dormant.
“I see no relevance here.” I have been hanging around this monastery for about six years now, and IIRC during my entire tenancy there has been “hopeful discussion” about this thing called “Perl 6.” But there has been no product, and I am personally of the judgment that there is no demand for it. If a valid engineering case for it existed, that requirement would have been swiftly met, long before now. If you now find that you are “beating a dead horse,” perhaps the root cause is that the horse is dead. However, I have zero interest in pursuing this point further.
