Cute idea, but your output from P(11) is..ambiguous.

And P(12) has the incorrect "1011" entry for 10, 11.

Nice improvement. It can indeed be compressed. Here is 74 characters:

sub P{ my$n=pop;[$n],map{my$i=$_;grep{!grep$_>$i,@$_}map[$i,@$_],P($n-$i)}1.. +$n-1 }

    Hmm, and we can shave that down to 71 chars:

    sub P{ [@_],map{my$i=$_;grep{!grep$_>$i,@$_}map[$i,@$_],P($_[0]-$i)}1..$_[0]- +1 }
      Nice, now slimed down to 64 on the knowledge that the partitions are always sorted from largest number to smallest...
      sub P{ [@_],map{my$i=$_;map$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_],P($_[0]-$i)}1..$_[0]-1 }
      Saved an additional char because my map could be commified.

      UPDATE 2
      Scraping the barrel for 61:

      sub P{ my$i;[@_],map{map$$_[0]>$i?():[$i,@$_],P($_[0]-++$i)}2..$_[0] }

        Tilly, i would say something, but it would sound clunky compared to the beautiful code above. It would be nice if i could ++ you more than once for that snippet.

        One question though, what's commified? i'm not sure if i've ever heard the term...
