I'd definitely like to see say in Perl 5. After the // operator (which is already slated for 5.10), I think say is probably the biggest "bang-for-the-buck" in all of Perl 6.

As for Perl6::Say being "wanting", I would agree. Unfortunately, Perl 5's import and subroutine prototype mechanisms aren't quite up to the task of implementing a full print-like syntax. If only I could do it in Perl 6. Oh, wait...
