Somehow this brings to mind the following quote ..
.. Commissioner Duell urging the closure of the Patent Office. So, your comment
has the same ring to it. I think there are still new and interesting questions being asked. After all, Perl 5.12 has just been released with a boatload of changes, and there are CPAN updates arriving every day.
In my opinion, there's still plenty to talk about, and the imminent arrival of Perl 6 (I've been hearing a Christmas delivery date .. for a couple of years) will just add a new topic of discussion.
I agree that when Perl 6 arrives, there are going to be plenty of people dealing with legacy (heh) Perl 5 while some folks will be able to zoom right into Perl 6. And we're all one big community -- why separate Perl 5 from Perl 6?
I'm reminded of a Star Trek episode with guest star Frank Gorshin, the one where he's black and white, chasing after a guy who's white and black. But I digress.
Traffic's only going to increase with the release of Perl 6. And that's going to be a good thing. :)
