in thread Summary of Perl in the past 2-3 years

I think that's a broad brush being used to paint Python and Ruby devs. The Zen of Python mentions "There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it." There can be multiple solutions, but one of them should be obvious to experienced Pythonistas. Experienced Ruby coders have no illusions about the language being cute or clean - they recognize the warts of the language, but still prefer to work within its world where every value is an easily inspected / modified object.

A super-CPAN could be a nice thing to have. I would be a happy camper if I could easily access Python-Markdown or the Seattle.rb projects from within my Rakudo app.
