in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?
I think I'll wait at least till 6.0.1 before even trying it out. And I think it will be pain at first. Especialy due to the change of sigils treatment. I'm used to Perl5's meanings of $, @ and % and now everything will be different ...
I'm sure that later I'll get used to it and will go ahead and explore all the magic, but I do expect quite some discomfort at first. So don't expect me to be among the early adopters.
Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
