Having Perl 6000 won't change that attitude. The only thing that will change that attitude is a redefinition of what a "useful programming language" is.

Essentially, what you're running into is snobbery, plain and simple. Java wasn't considered a "real programming language" by the C/C++ people for years. Yet, here it is. C++ wasn't considered to be its own language when it first came out, either. Bjorne Strousoup didn't even conceive of it as a different language. It was more an extension than anything else. (For those wondering, it would be similar to considering Perl 5.x with TheDamian's extensions like Switch to be a "different language".)

What I feel, primarily, is that you do what you do. If you do object-oriented applications development (like I do) and you use Perl, then Perl is an OO-apps development language. If you use it for easing administration scripting headaches, then it's a admin scripting language. :-)

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.
