I do not see how adding Perl6 questions to the mix will be any different.
It will be different.
Perl5 came out in 1994 so by the time PM came around (1999?) Perl4 was fairly obsolete. I have not noted many Perl4 questions. Hopefully Perl6 will be much more popular.
Perl5 is a superset of Perl4, at least I can't remember any Perl4 that failed or changed meaning under perl5. Perl6 changes the meaning of very small chunks of code. The confusion factor will be much greater.

This is just insulting and you are forgiven. In my post I stated that the problem has not arrived yet -- there is nothing frantic in my post. I suggested action -- there is no What ever will we do? tone. Like you I think PM is great. I am trying to keep it that way. I'm sorry that the quality of my thoughts are such that they inspire your ridicule.
