I don't know what's sadder: the fact that the use of Perl 5 ithreads is being discouraged by p5p, or that you basically are no longer taking p5p seriously:

PerlRe is full of warnings like "WARNING: This extended regular expression feature is considered experimental, and may be changed without notice.", that will never go away.

With regards to:

Lies and misdirection: the only remaining hope for Perl6!

The fact that you are saying this seems to me to be in direct conflict with:

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice

Fortunately there's a lot more hope for Perl 5 and Perl 6 than that you are willing to acknowledge.
