Perl 6 coming out has little to do with continuation of Perl 5 releases.

Yeah -- I've heard/read the discussion before about the fact that Perl 6 is more of a fork than a next iteration, and I'm happy with that. I like Perl 5 too much to want it to vanish entirely -- though I suspect that with time I may find myself using it less and less in favor of Perl 6.
