And I really, really can't understand, how people (and on lwn.net most oft all) still think that removing people from project X means more people on the "more important" project Y in free software. It doesn't. Period.
The people working on Perl 6 all have stated repeatedly, that they would not be interested in working on Perl 5. They're there for Perl 6. Ending development of Perl 6 would mean, that they would move elsewhere, not to Perl 5.
Removing Perl 6 would diminish the Perl world. That's what the people involved with developing both languages say. Of course you're free to hypothesize any other way.
