in thread Perl to Ruby translator?

Perl 6 is almost entirely about not breaking new ground. There's nothing new or revolutionary in it--this is all well-travelled ground. (Granted, not by perl, but well-travelled nonetheless) All that's happening is we've stopped mining the '60s and '70s for features and have started in on the '80s...

    Which is a better way to say what I meant. :) Perl5, Ruby, Python, and even more so the "real" (feh) languages like Java and C++ are all pretty well grounded on the '60s/'70s level. They're not new ground from a scientifical viewpoint, but '80s features will largely present new ground to people coding for a living.

    Makeshifts last the longest.
