in reply to perl 6

I am tempted to say that Perl can't be a real programming language for the same reason that Perl programming can't be a real job - it is too much fun.

But that is rather snide, so I will leave the temptation lie...

As for people who talk about "real programming languages" like Java and C++, how about we give you your "real programming language" without features like closures and dynamic programming, and me my "toy language" with them, and why don't we see who gets more done?
