It's all nice and dandy, including the funny "next Christmas" remarks ... it's just ten years too late. The language would have an infinitely better chance if you did a few search&replaces in the source code and documentation, removed all references to Perl whatsoever, made one or two more ad hoc changes to the use of special characters and operators, found a few people nobody knows and have them released it elsewhere under a new name and hope nobody notices it's not something new, but rather a project started some 18 years ago originally supposed to be finished about 15 years ago.

Enoch was right!
Enjoy the last years of Rome.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
