|Please advise me as to how to proceed.
You have at least two options, both of which are available to you today and neither of which is difficult: continue to use Perl5 or switch to Ruby (or any of a number of other scripting/programming languages). Lots of programs have come out with "Version 2" or 3 or 4 or 98 or 2000 or 9.1 or X or XP and lots of users continue to do quite fine on their existing software/platforms. Also, a quick look at your alternatives indicates that almost any programming language is about trade-offs. Choose tools which are suited to the task at hand (and to the resources-- time, knowledge, money-- available)... maybe Perl6 is the right tool, maybe it won't be.
