Yeah, I hear your pain, some of it is shared by humble myself too.

What I'd love to see is some level of integration into package management, like in my case, apt-get.

Another annoyance is that CPAN:: doesn't have any uninstall/remove capabilities, or at least not something trivial like install <module> is.

CPAN is a great resource, but making it more accessible would help a lot in code reuse. There are some modules which depend on half of CPAN and installing such monsters are hard and annoying. When the compilation fails somewhere I have to figure which debian packages to install, then retry. Not really userfriendly.

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