It does indeed, but I myself look forward to having all these new tools at my finger tips. I do worry that it may in reality be complicating things too much. I'll hold off judging till it's a little closer to fruitation. I certainly will jump in, though production stuff will stay with Perl 5 for a while I'm sure.
in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?
If it turns out to be that problematic, then I think things will fork and you'll have Perl5i or something along that lines.
