Perl6 accelerates this trend
They seem to be at least perpetuating some unfortunate perl5 design choices. (I see they've also opted for having say/print round doubles to 15 decimal digits of precision.)
I've mentioned before that Jarkko Hietaniemi plans to replace perl5's current (homegrown) implementation with netlib's gdtoa if he manages to find the tuits.
I gather that would be an excellent development, but I've no idea whether he will ever find those tuits - and no-one else seems at all interested in doing anything about it.
Anyway, I have workarounds in place for perl5 but it would be nice if perl6 didn't require the same workarounds.
