Maybe ballet would be more useful. The various perl 6 projects (pugs, parrot, etc.) seem like a meandering Larry Wall joke. Perl 6 scares me.
We have a large investment in Perl 5 code, and I don't see any compelling reason to move away from Perl 5. The antics of perl6 development (I heard Larry Wall talking about the exciting Perl 6 future 7 years ago) fail to inspire confidence.
Oh, and I agree with another poster: Tcl/Tk 8.5 are great! :-) Too bad there's no Tcl equivalent of CPAN. IMO, CPAN is the killer feature of Perl and the only real reason to use it.
