Yes, my understanding is also that XS support is vitally important for the vast majority of legacy and contemporary uses of P5, even one-liners.

The future is very hard to predict, but I'd guess that this general picture is likely to continue for the next decade. That said, I think v5 on Android, and custom v5 slangs, eg one making multicore processing convenient, might start to shift things.

The P6 strategy has long been to support multiple bridges between P5 and P6, including both v5 and a libperl+XS bridge. See my recent Perl 6 <-> Perl 5 bridges PerlMonks comment for a few more details.

I agree with your emphasis on technical concerns and that's generally my focus.

However, we're all irrational creatures at heart and that seems to be particularly relevant in your case. Your continual disparagement of Larry Wall and those working with him ("I'm sure it's a fun experiment for the author") and what I see as wilful twisting of the P6 viewpoint (everywhere I've ever looked in the 13 years of the P6 project, the importance of CPAN and XS has been explicitly consistently recognized) suggests to me that you are either angry or contemptuous or both. I don't want anyone to be constantly angry or contemptuous about anything and especially not when it's directed towards Larry Wall and folk working for the betterment of Perl. So I spend time imagining about how you might feel so I might find a way to avoid triggering you. If there is not some underlying wound, please, please imagine how Larry Wall feels when you're considering what to write.
