I think the problem is that many people don't really grasp all the concepts of Perl5 (I know so many programmers at the company I work for who fall into this category...) so they're scared of what Perl6 might bring along.
But those are not the types that read the Apocalypses anyway.
And then there's us.
Of course it's a problem if that's the only way of learning one is capable of, but I find it's one of the most effective ways there are.
To people who don't grasp error messages caused by using concepts they don't understand, I like to quote MJD to: "Well, if you don't know what it does, why did you put in your program?".
If they want to know I always have the time to explain.
Over lunch or a decent malt. On weekends, too.
