I agree I think Perl6 is just a myth, just a rumour of greener grass. a gentle whispher of idealogy floating in the summer wind.

Tell that to the people who are actually working on it. If you're going to play armchair Perl hacker, at least tune in once in a while.

they should just join the Apache ranks

And that would help, how? Will the magical Apache Hackers do all the development for them?

or do it like the Mysql folks and set up an open source company for it.

So the most excellent people actually doing the work (as opposed to you) should give up the their own money and the little time they have to start up a company, with basically 0 chance of profitability? And this will get Perl 6 into your highly deserving hands faster, how?

Just because Perl is OSS doesn't mean it magically appears out of the void. People have to spend a lot of their time developing it and get virtually no compensation in return. How do you think it helps to state their work is just a myth? Get contributing, or get out of the way.
