I guess I have most of the same thoughts others have.   I worry that Larry and Damian might overreach and get some really basic thing muddled.   I don't want to have to do $filehandle.autoflush(1) instead of $|++.   And '_' instead of '.' for concat?!
But then I was reading exegesis 3 and came to Damian saying "in perl5 that would be...".   I had a momentary sensation like accidentally coming on some Fortran code or something and thinking: "Boy, I remember when we had to go through all that just to get something done".   So, now I've stopped worrying (and I'm getting impatient with perl5).
(Maybe currying will transform Perl in perl6 like references did in perl5.)
