in thread Perl 6 feature that scares me the most:

People who follow my XS philosophy (write as little XS as possible, don't write "Perl in C", pretend you are using Inline::C not XS, have a Perl wrapper make the data C-friendly for the XS routine if needed) probably won't have to rewrite.

I just wanted to "gloat" since I think I get more "disrespect" for this philosophy than not. (:

Update: You can do more than wrappers, just deal with data in C-friendly structures in your C code; don't write C code to manipulate Perl data structures.

    Absolutely--the people who are only writing wrapper code won't have nearly so much to worry about... <ducking>
