in thread Perl 6 coming out in 18 months(?)

Perl is all about letting people think they know what's going on until they really need to know what's going on.

I love that. It seems (appropriately) applicable to the confusion in the community over how close Perl 6 is to being done, too.

Frankly, I'm a fan of the "it's done when it's done" approach -- it tends to lead to better software when all is said and done, assuming you have enthusiastic people working on it, in my experience. I'm also impatient to have a stable Perl 6 to play with, though. For one thing, that's when the good tutorial documentation will start to appear, and I'd really like to start reading the stuff.
