      Yes, you're right and I agree with you, but there are unfortunately quite a few monks around here who have very negative knee-jerk reactions to Perl 6.

        Sure, but there are also monks who spent a lot of time with it and have developed an informed, negative reaction to it.

        And the by far loudest one is actually the most isolated!

        Better don't worry! :)
