Your description indeed made Perl 6 sounds very scary.
Yes, it can be quite scary at times, but that (at least for me) is the fun part. Keep in mind too that Pugs is only one small portion of the overall Perl 6 effort. If you want sanity and stability, I am sure there are other areas where you could get involved if you were so inclined.
You prbably didn't know what you are doing.
I never said I did ;-)
No sane person or corporation will go with perl 6, and your words simply decreased my interest ;-(
This is somewhat of a blanket statement. No sane person or corporation would go with Perl 6 now. But it is not finished yet, would you have used Java for your Enterprise Application in 1994/5? Certainly not, back then it was only good for applets and GUI toys, IIRC there was no things like JDBC until a few years later.
As for my $work, I have no plans on replacing all our Perl 5 code with Perl 6 anytime soon. But for $play, I enjoy experimenting with Perl 6 and the new concepts it brings to Perl.
