( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After seeing the poll about new featurs in Perl 6 and the number of people who did not want to think about it (lalalala, I can't hear you). I began thinking.

Perl 6 seems to be a very radical change. Apart from the 'compatability layer' that allows you to run Perl 5.x code, one could argue that it is an entirely new langauge. Do we need a new language? What is so wrong with Perl 5.x that we need Perl 6? When Perl 6 comes out, how many will move to it? How many will avoid it until the last possible minute?

    [Corion]: marto: Naah, my module doesn't care, but the users of my module might expect some things to work in Chrome that only work in later builds (or, as seems to be the case, don't work there either ;) )
    [Corion]: But I really wonder - I can tell Chrome to go offline, but requesting pages over the network still succeeds. But if I manually click the "offline" checkbox, that's different :-/
    [LanX]: Corion can you tell WMC to check the sub version number ?
    LanX has to run
