I've come to this thread pretty late but I find it troubling that so many people are whining about Perl6.
I run a company that uses Perl as its primary development language. It has always been difficult to find talented Perl programmers. Perl 6 is making it *much* more difficult because the whole development process has made Perl look like a crazy experiment rather than a practical language for building software. It's easy to say "if you don't like Perl 6, use Perl 5" but you're discounting the real harm done to Perl and the Perl community by the "new-age experimental" Perl 6.
