No one has decades to wait for a programming language. Which no one has clue what it can do, Nothing related to Perl 6 at this time is even remotely close to ready. We are talking of smoke stuff. Building palaces in thin air, and then saying "ooh, look at this when this actually completes. It will make Buckingham palace look like a hut".
If you can't provide a compelling replacement in time, some one else will. And no matter how beautiful your claim your tool to be, its still non existent. Or at least not usable. Perl 5 is usable and does the job *now*. And there are millions using Perl 5, are you saying they are fools for not chasing a day dream? Nopes, they just realize a little performance sacrifice is a lot better than waiting for something that isn't seeming to be ready even after more than a decade.
Projects that generally take this long. Never reach their goal. They die a slow death.
